Here are some photos and tidbits from our recent vacation to Point Reyes National Seashore, which is north of San Francisco.
Here is where we stayed. We enjoyed a private patio behind the bench and bushes which overlooks a pretty five acres and a creek, complete with wild deer and birds. Here I am standing on our deck.
Above are chairs lined up waiting for guests. I like the shadows on the path. We preferred sitting on this swing.
A November vacation can be a great and relaxing time, and this one lived up to its potential for us.
Here is a mural at a cute garden and lumber store in Point Reyes Station.
We visited a ranger station / natural history museum where we learned that Point Reyes Peninsula is NOT on the North American tectonic plate, but is on the adjacent plate and it is MOVING north heading to Alaska!
Above and below are photos of my husband and I "talking" to an elephant seal sculpture. Years ago we saw elephant seals in the wild, close up, and if they aren't moving they look like boulders. We walked past some, thinking they were boulders, and then one moved and we saw it was a gigantic elephant seal.
