My dear friend from college visited this past weekend from San Diego. I sold her on basically repeating exactly the weekend experience my brother and I had a few months ago. She obliged, and it was awesome. On the itinerary: oysters at Nick's Cove, wine tasting at Gloria Ferrer in Sonoma and a beautiful hike through Lands End near my house in San Francisco.
My favorite activity: drinks in the cozy shack at the end of the pier.
The weather this go-around was quite a bit more cooperative than the stormy weekend we had last time.
The charm across the restaurant at Nick's Cove makes me want to move in.
The menu (& wine list) reinforce that.
Perfect weather for drinks on the deck <3
View looking back onto land from out on the pier - we had some overcast skies the day we arrived that burned off by Saturday.
Marshall's sweet Nick's Cove.
Rounding out the SF-Tomales-Sonoma triangle with a stop at Gloria Ferrer.
A handful of the steps down to Mile Rock Beach that can be brutal on the calves on the way back up.
Mile Rock Beach: a fine finale.

Check out lodging/staying details in my original post regarding Nick's Cove here. This is a getaway I'd be pumped to repeat at least once a year. Enjoy!
