Just north of San Francisco, there is a little ranch town named Point Reyes. If you like food fresh from the source this place has it. Cowgirl Creamery is a famous cheese made there, as well as Oysters from Tomales Bay.
One of my favorite things to do is go down and get fresh bread and cheese from the creamery and head north to get fresh oysters. You can sit there on the beach and eat them right there out of the bay.
Pro tip: Bring a shucker ( you can rent one), a blanket to sit on, a knife, lemon, hot sauce, and other goodies for lunch.
It is sometimes so nice just to wear a pair of jeans and a perfect white shirt. I always get cold so I have layers when it gets windy throughout the day. But nothing beats the classic white T-shirt and jeans.
There is Beach just west of the town, that is really remote. The Point Reyes Lighthouse is just beyond that. It is so beautiful there. You can just walk on the beach and not see anyone for miles. You can just sit and watch the waves come in and crash on the shore.
The Ice plant: The ice plant is an invasive species that was introduced from South Africa. It was added to help with stabilizing the sand along the coast. It takes over the landscape, even though it is beautiful with the greens, and reds, it doesn’t allow the native plants to live in the area. There are efforts by the forest service to reduce the amount of cover.
