Fresh Oysters, My own Beach, And Beautiful Nature

Fun getaway from the Bay and a change from the usual car camping or backpacking. We rented our kayak from Blue Water, very friendly people. Loaded our kayak with our gear and fresh oyster we got on the way. We set up camp while enjoying freshly shucked oysters and music from our waterproof speaker. There was one group departing n 2 other campers coming in. We pedaled to all the beach nearby. All very beautiful n deserted. We searched for bioluminescent but it was hard to see that night even though there was no moon. In the morning, we saw hammer sharks, rays swimming in the water while enjoying our breakfast.

You'll love who you are when you are in Marin!

Marin County is just a little out there. As in one famous bridge away from San Francisco. And right next door to the vineyards and Napa and Sonoma. Closer than you could ever imagine to everything that's unique in this clever corner of California. Take a vacation from the typical vacation
