Point Reyes Seashore

God’s Country

Point Reyes National Seashore Point Reyes National Seashore is a 71,000+ acre park preserve located on the Point Reyes Peninsula in Marin County, California. To cut to the chase, it’s one of the most stunning places you’ll ever see.

North Beach at Point Reyes Beach is the northern access point to an 11-mile long beach on the west side of Point Reyes National Seashore. Beachcombing is probably the biggest activity here with a huge expanse of beach and powerful waves hurling goodies onto the sand. You can walk for miles in both directions and drift logs provide resting options along the shore, but don’t go swimming there because there’s a rip tide and undertow.

I took this photo a couple of years ago when lighthouse access was still possible. A lot of that area is now closed for significant repairs to the lighthouse. One of these days we’ll get down to the beach itself, though it doesn’t look like it will be this year.

This photo was taken around 4:30AM 2 days ago. It underscores the need of yours truly to drag his sleepy butt out of the sack if he wants to get some REALLY GOOD light.

We were down by Boston Harbor today. A humongous Norwegian cruise ship was tied up at a pier near we had parked. It was an overwhelming site but somehow I couldn’t frame the bloated passenger liner properly. Just as I was about to leave I spied this yellow bollard near a rust spot on the ship’s hull. Framed against it with the grey wooden barrier as a neighbor, to me, this massive iron post conveys the rigors of the ocean quite well.
