Bike Ride to Tomales Bay

On Saturday I rode my regular route over the Bridge, through Marin, past Nicasio and Point Reyes Station. I covered new ground and took a ride along Highway 1 and Tomales Bay to Marshall. I would have loved to stop at the famous Hog Island Oyster Company, joining the masses for a picnic in the sun, but I knew oysters wouldn't sit well with the ride I had ahead of me. I finished the ride at a friend's family's house on the other side of Tomales Bay. We took a quick swim at high tide. Then I relaxed in the hammock, smelling the sweet salt water, listening to the waves hit the shore. I could have stayed forever...

July 4th in Monterey & Carmel

I went down to Monterey and Carmel for the fourth of July. The weather was warm--"warm" like it is in SF, so it was good I had my layers. But the scenes, beaches, houses, golf courses, shopping were fun way to spend the day.
