Pt. Reyes Station



At the bottom of the hill from where I'm staying is Pt. Reyes Station, a quaint-yet-hip tourist town with plenty going on paricularly on sunny weekends when it fills with San Francisco's weekend warriors, bikers and upwardly mobile looking for something simpler.




When "partner" walked into town the other day to let me finish my word count, we decided to meet in front of the old character tree near the Palace Market at a particular time but a few minutes before appointed time, I got a call. "Change of plans. A singing minstrel has taken over the tree so we'll have to meet down the block."

Toby's, a local all-in-one hosts an art gallery, fresh produce stand and gift shop as well as yoga and meditation classes and even a Saturday night Barn Dance!











The Cowgirl Creamery in the old Creamery building (what was once an old barn) features locally-made organic artisan cheeses and gourmet foods as well as organic produce. Besides their original location in Pt. Reyes Station, they maintain a shop at the Ferry Plaza in San Francisco as well as a second store in Washington, D.C.






Can't wait to check out the local bookstore and bakery!

Thank you for your lovely comments. I'm enjoying my visit to your blog and feel a square dance coming on....Just kidding, I'm not a very good dancer! Love your Balzac quote and everything you are sharing. Will be back for a longer visit on the weekend.

Thanks for coming by and commenting. I wanted to check out the dance just for fun but couldn't talk Pardner into it. I don't dance much either so would have ended up watching most likely!

Hello Kirsten!
Anita from Castles Crowns and Cottages! Thank you so much for visiting me; how did you ever find me? I am new to blogland myself, since January. It has been so much fun meeting people with similar and varying interests! Your photos make me reminiscent of California. That takes a lot to do that to me! I will add you to my list as well. Take care and come back soon. Anita
