This is my entry for Cee’s Black and White photography challenge. We spent July 4th driving out to Point Reyes Station where we made dinner reservations at the Station House, got a pastry or two from Bovine Bakery, then headed out to Drakes Estero where we saw fox, coyote, deer, cattle, and loads and loads of birds. Interestingly enough, the estero was fairly void of its usual assortment of ducks and shore birds. Just a few cormorants and the odd turkey vulture keeping an eye on things.
The town of Point Reyes Station is only a block or so long, but it hosts some mighty fine shops. Here are my favorites for this week’s event.
Among other books in the book shop window was Susan Casey’s The Wave: In Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks, and Giants of the Ocean, and William Finnegan’s Barbarian Days, A Surfing Life.
I enjoyed both books, especially Finnegan’s. He narrated it on Audible.com. Great story telling on a subject near and dear to me..
Point Reyes certainly has surf, but it’s generally way past my ability. And the mouth of Tomales Bay, at the north end of the jut of land that is Point Reyes National Seashore, is rumored to be a breeding ground for the great white shark.
No trip to Point Reyes Station is complete without a stop for coffee and pastry at Bovine Bakery. Pretty much every weekend morning you’ll find a line out the door, and they have a assortment of gluten-free products for my sweetie.
