Time Out


We grabbed the chance to drive to Point Reyes Station yesterday to remove our noses from grindstone, and once again I marvelled at the magnificent scenery right at our back door. Part of Sir Frances Drake Boulevard winds along San Geronimo Creek and Lagunitas Creek, in and out of stands of redwoods and always with the water right beside the road, and cool fresh air with a heavenly balsamic smell – something of pine, something of bay laurel.

The Station Cafe has iconic barley soup but we had already eaten, so I visited Coyuchi (home of the most marvellous, simple organic bath towels) while Stefan had coffee at Toby’s Barn. Cowgirl Creamery, a saloon which looks like an old Western,
maybe because it is an old Western! After the drive, and the coffee, and the pottering about, we were totally refreshed. Just what a road trip is for.

Today or tomorrow we need to take the pole-cam to Monterey, and we will call in on Scarlett at Saffron & Genevieve http://saffronandgenevieve.com/ on the way, in Santa Cruz to see the amazing, wonderful stuff she has in store. Sounds like another lovely day.

    What a great spot! I have driven through Point Reyes, but never stopped. And a trip to Santa Cruz sounds like a lot of fun, too.

    Sounds like a wonderful day. Road trips are just great. And visiting little stores and cafes along the way is just heavenly. Glad you're feeling restored..Rachaelxx
