Perched along the waters edge along Highway 1is a restaurant called The Marshall House. I stumbled upon it a few trips ago and I always make an effort to swing in and order something new. Today I ordered the smoked oysters with fresh steamed crab and it was GOOD!
You sit outside, listen to the water lapping on the sand, and the sailboat ropes clanging against the masts.
The countryside is absolutely beautiful. After lunch the road turned inland, along a country road with cows and sheep grazing, and your classic red barns nestled in vast rolling hills with lush green, high growing grass. As I type this, I’m just outside of Bodega Bay and pulled over to explore a fish market. And yah! I finally got reception!
