Since rain is predicted all weekend in the North Bay, Mom, Dad, and I drove north this morning (instead of tomorrow as we had originally planned). We headed for Muir Woods, but changed plans once we learned that the park parking lot was full, the shuttle lot was full, and the shuttle line was long. We continued north to Point Reyes Station for lunch at Marin Sun Farms.
After lunch, we drove on to the lighthouse. Even though it was cloudy, windy, and chilly by the time we got to the lighthouse, we enjoyed the vistas, watching a bird hover in the wind (unfortunately my photos of that are blurry), and climbing the 308 steps back up from the lighthouse.
Now I want to spend a long weekend in one of the lovely inns on the coast to spend time on the beach, hike in the hills, and poke around in all the little towns. And distribute the long drives over a couple of days.
