Part #5: Drake’s Beach, Near Point Reyes Light House (or rather on the way to Point Reyes Light House).
What is there not to like in this beach. We were on our way from San Francisco to Point Reyes and even though there were some popular beaches on the way, it was way too crowded and we didn’t want to waste our time there. I am always in favor of a beach which is away from the crowd. And the more interior we went, the more foggy it started getting. We did not plan to stop by the Drake’s beach. We were already running late for the light house and we thought we missed our way somewhere. But then when we saw a sign we decided to make a quick stop to grab a bite. We were in for a surprise. I just fell in love with that beach. It was a weekend and still it was pretty empty. And see those fogs ? It was too cool. Very windy at that time and almost froze us but it was just wow. One of my very very favorite beaches in California (not that I have been to many) There was only one restaurant with limited options at that time (it was in 2010 or 2011 I think) and we overstayed our time there. Who can resist this. I would definitely love to go back again and spend a whole day there watching the Drake’s Bay Cliffs.
