Forty miles northwest of San Francisco lies the Point Reyes Peninsula. It’s another national park where elephant seals lounge on the beach and whales pass by offshore. My family and I saw one when we visited a few years ago.
My cousin and her husband spend their summers there in their 100 year-old house. We joined them for a couple of days to watched hummingbirds and deer eating apples in the yard.
There are many unique houses like the one below built on stilts on Tomales Bay.
Point Reyes seems so rural yet is less than an hour from the Big City.
After had our share of blackberries and bucolia, we headed there.
