Point Reyes to Strawberry Falls

My friends just got back from an epic snowboarding winter in Colorado so I was excited to come up to Sausalito to spend the weekend catching up!! They planned out an awesome hike in Point Reyes to Alamere Falls - I didn't realize until half way in the hike that the special treat was THREE waterfalls - the last one falling right down into the pacific ocean. We started at 1pm and took our time exploring Bass Lake, Pelican Lake and finally through a maze of wild flowers we relaxed on the waterfalls which we renamed to be Strawberry Falls (which it be forever known to be the place where we ate TwoSmallFarms fresh Strawberries).

I'm kicking myself for not bringing a camera but it was such a perfect day, perfect variety of trees, lakes, water, falls, wild flowers and just good company. On the way back we wandered into this swamp which we've renamed as Turkey Jerky Swamp as that was the food of choice when we stumbled upon it.

I LOVED every part of this hike and highly recommend it if you're lucky enough to find a sunny not so breezy day in Point Reyes. The variety of things to see was great, there was not much of an incline and the views were just incredible.

The day ended with a delicious meal of oysters, salmon, scallops and sea bass. The night ended with me sleeping in a "shack" with a floor to ceiling full view of the bay and Angel Island (and a full moon - which seemed orange and not the same as the moon I had seen the day before)

Sunday morning started off with a sunrise view of the bay and home-made:
- Egg white omelette with cream cheese and smoked salmon.
- Multigrain chocolate and nut pancakes
- ACME Olive Bread
- Fage Yogurt with Strawberries.

Yummmy. Life is so simple on weekends.
