Nothern California

Standard
Magnificent views at Nick's Cove

We had a great dinner here!

If you ever get a chance to explore the Northern California coastline, be sure to spend some time at Dillon Beach & the surrounding area. This was taken at Nick’s Cove, near Point Reyes, in the small seaside town of Marshall. The roadhouse restaurant & Oyster Bar is adjacent to cottages for rent & look straight out of a movie set! Guess what? A friend shared with me that several films DID use this area for movie scenes. The more memorable one was Stephen King’s “The Fog”.  Fortunately for me, no fog during my visit, just beautiful clear skies and the most calm water I’ve ever seen on a Northern California beach!

Awesome morning hike

Standard

We were up in Northern California a few weeks ago, heading to Oregon. We decided to stay in the MT. Shasta area over night to break up the drive.

We stayed within a mile of this quaint lake area n asked our Bed n breakfast host if there were any hiking trails nearby that weren’t too strenuous , as we had our 14 yr. old with us n had about an hour to enjoy the great outdoors ! This is beautiful Lake Siskyou in the morning
