A hazy and cold welcome to the Californian coast
Sometimes your biggest disappointment can turn out to become a really beautiful memory. I think that is how I best would like to describe my meeting with Point Reyes. Point Reyes is a vast cape just north of San Francisco, a natural seashore sanctuary. Louise and I had decided to take a night in this area before heading to San Francisco. We had read about the amazing views from the Point Reyes shores, big chanses of seeing dolphins and even whales. What met us was ice cold wind and a grey sky. After checking in to the rustic Point Reyes hostel where we were placed in a new built dormitory house which we had all to ourself, we took a windy walk along the coast.
Even if it was grey and cold I slowly started to appreciate the feeling of peace that came with this laidback place. And after a wonderful nights sleep in a super quiet hostel without wifi and other media noise, we had a lovely day discovering parts of Point Reyes before heading to San Fransisco. I had fresh oysters at a cute oyster farm called Drakes Bay which we just by coincidence passed by. We felt the fresh and powerful Pasific winds as we wandered along the Lighthouse area. Cute deers popped out from nowhere and greeted us to their peaceful home. When thinking back I have only good memories from this experience which I felt was a bit fairytalish. A true natural gem.
