Greetings from Point Reyes!
We decided to get out of town for just one night, and headed north to the expansive Point Reyes National Seashore which is a massive preserve geologically separated from it’s neighboring Marin County (source Wikipedia, including photo source).
We walked around Limantour Beach, then briskly hiked the Pacific Coast trail. The Bear Valley Visitor Center indicated that they’d counted 27 whale sightings yesterday and 2 today. Hopefully we’ll get to see whales and elk tomorrow. The only big wildlife we saw today were quail.
