After the massive house hunt, M and I took off for Easter to get away. All I knew was I wanted to see the ocean and with a bit of research, we landed at Point Reyes National Seashore. We headed to the lighthouse, trekked down and back up all the flights of stairs, saw a few whales, and then headed to the beach for the picnic lunch I so carefully planned. The rain started coming down right as we got to the beach but not to be deterred, we threw the seats down in the back of the jeep, spread the blanket out, and were able to still enjoy the ocean while we ate. We took the long way back along highway 1, weaving our way along the ocean and trees. It felt so nice to get away and spend out last day together before I move out permanently in six weeks, enjoying our new/future home state. We have plans for this to be a reoccurring theme this summer for the days we need a break. We pack a cooler, pinpoint a location, and head out: I think I’m going to like it here.
The Picnic Goods:
Tangerines , Veggies (leftover celery from the egg salad and snap peas) with Ranch, and Avocados (I put these on the egg salad sandwich).
(and then, if that’s not enough, you can catch a bakery on the way back to the main road and grab one of these wonderful cinnamon rolls from the Busy Bee Bakery in Inverness.)
