Jun 29, 2010 - Tomales Point

It was a 7:30 AM departure under sunny skies as we drove the one hour scenic route to Point Reyes to do the five star rated Tomales Point Hike. The drive was so scenic with the multi toned rolling brown hills punctuated with herds of dairy cattle and old scenic farmhouses and barns. The road is a twisty roller coaster in every sense of the term! 20 mph curves are frequent. Occaisional brave cyclists share the narrow macadam road. One passes in and out of shadows and into canyons lined by tall cypress. Point Reyes Peninsula is a preserve...

We paddled out into fabulous Tomales Bay under beautiful sunny skies.The deep blue water contrasted sharply with the distant westward cliffs separating the Bay from the Pacific.

The hike is 10 miles round trip and so was a challenge to our yet to be conditioned bodies. The good news was it was a real fat...

Jun 15, 2009 - Tomales Bay Nick's Cove area

We paddled out into fabulous Tomales Bay as the mystic like clouds rolled in above the westward cliffs separating the Bay from the Pacific. The cool damp wind swept down the hills and created a light chop in the sparkling blue water. We left from Miller's Landing at Nick's Cove and headed across the Bay towards Hog Island. We disembarked at the Island and delighted in the rich marine, plant and bird life. At the shoreline area were 100's of crabs hiding under the rocks and any nook and cranny they could find. Jelly fish were large and...
