Point Reyes Explorations

Despite being from California, there is so much of the state I have yet to explore. Especially, in Northern California. Now that my wife and I live in San Francisco, I'm trying to see as many new places as I can in the bay area. 

That brings me to oysters. In order to find compromise to take photos all day, I had to promise my wife that there would be something in it for her. We decided on a fantastic lunch at Hog Island Oyster Farm in Marshall, on Tomales Bay. And it was heaven. Who doesn't like fresh oysters!?

Following lunch, we explored Point Reyes and it's jaw-dropping beauty. I can't wait to come back again for the oysters and the views.

Sometimes all you need is a road trip to soothe the soul...

One of my best friends was getting married in L.A. so I decided to make a road trip out of it. Alone. I found a cheap rental car here in San Francisco and left on a Sunday afternoon. My stops along way included Santa Cruz, Morro Bay, Monterey and Big Sur. It was the first time in almost ten years that I driven this exact route on Pacific Coast Highway. Ten hours later, I finally arrived in L.A. but it was well worth the time.
