Mr. B and I have been so busy lately that we have not had much time to relax and when we do it's usually TV or a book or going out to dinner.
But earlier this week we decided to change that and we earmarked this weekend to spend some time together.
We haven't taken a "road trip" in quite awhile so we dropped the doggies off with Grandma & Grandpa in the morning. Got our coffee & Diet Coke and headed to Marin County.
Even though it has be unseasonably warm around here, the hills in Marin are still quite green and full of wildflowers.
We first stopped in Point Reyes Station but between bicycle riders, motorcycles and cars, it was a little crowded.
We did head into the Cow Girl Creamery.......mmm.....love their cheese!
Then we headed up Hwy. 1 towards Tomales enjoying the winding road, Oyster beds and people enjoying the beautiful day.
After having lunch outside in Tomales, we went to Dillon Beach to watch the surfers.
|Now when was the last time you saw a Public Telephone???|
No surfers today but lot's of people on the beach and several people flying kites. There was a line of about 15 cars waiting to get into the beach parking lot so we decided to head further north towards Bodega Bay.

The hills were filled with lazy cows waiting in line to be milked, sweet young lambs & even a few Llamas!
Tonight is "Dinner & a Movie" night with the kids so I had better get cooking!!
