Tomales Bay, Take 2: Just As Good

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.

Marin Under Wraps

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.
