Point Reyes National Seashore

I live in an area that experiences Winter and come April I am ready to be outdoors. Last year around this time my spouse and I had a case of cabin fever and decided to take a trip to the Point Reyes National Seashore in California.

There are multiple dairy farms within Point Reyes. We passed by one dairy farm and the cows were lining up for the afternoon milking and some chow. The cows here know a thing or too about making great dairy products, especially California cheese.

We ventured over to McClures Beach to locate the Elk herd within Point Reyes and stop for lunch on the beach. You will have a little hike from the parking area to McClures Beach, but the beach and ocean views are so worth it. When we were at the beach it looked like there were two fins sticking out of the water out a ways from the beach – not sure if it were two sharks or not. This beach is not a swimming beach due to the rough waves and tides. We did see the Elk herd on our way back out and think they had the best spot in the park for grazing.

Another beach area to explore in Point Reyes is Limantour Beach. There is an estuary on the way to the beach and the beach is gorgeous. We went for a walk along the beach and watched the waves roll in and out.

The most adventurous part of our visit was going to see the Point Reyes Lighthouse. Let me tell you that you do not need to do the stairmaster at the gym for weeks after walking down and back up from the lighthouse.

Yes those are the stairs leading down to the Point Reyes Lighthouse and Yes there is only one way back up! (Photo by RSheridan)

We stayed in Petaluma, California and explored the unique shops and great restaurants while there. We went for a drive one day and ended up in Bodega Bay and stopped in Bodega Head to stretch our legs and explore. The seagulls are huge and may leave a calling card on your vehicle while in Bodega Head. Bodega Bay is where “The Birds” movie was filmed and saw the schoolhouse.

There is plenty to do and see and you will not be disappointed if you visit this area. Point Reyes National Seashore covers a good majority of land so be prepared to drive and plan a few stops along the way to get out and explore. Even if you never leave the car around every curve or hill there is something to see. Watch out when coming upon a dairy farm because the farm cats sometimes sun bath right in the road.
