Sooo I resisted NorCal pretty hardcore when I moved back to San Francisco after 6 years in LA. The 70-degree, pool-ridden mecca's allure hadn't yet faded for me. As a result, I wasted a lot of time my first year back, traveling back to LA often and thus missing out on the Bay Area's many adventures and explorations. One of these is Nick's Cove, a collection of shabby chic yet luxuriously furnished and equipped cottages right along Tomales Bay. My friend, Christie, first told me about this gem - so I decided to escape for the weekend with brother and Bear in tow.
