Report 1728: Tomales Bay Weekend

By gloria from California, Fall 2009

The next morning, we walked across the street and had the most delicious and fresh pastry with fresh brewed coffee. The Tomales Bakery is a meeting place for the many cyclists and motorcycle riders that populate this region every weekend. There are many pastries, both sweet and savory, to choose from for breakfast. As lunch approaches, small pizzettas with different toppings, as well as calzones are available. When they run out, which they often do on the weekends, they run out. If a full breakfast and lunch is what you are looking for, go right next door to the Tomales Deli and Cafe.

After a quick trip to Dillon Beach, where we enjoyed the sun and surfers, we made our way home with a stop for some Tomales Bay oysters. We arrived at Hog Island and were turned away because we didn't have a reservation, so we made our way to the Marshall Store located on Highway 1. This is not a fancy place. It consists of several rooms, seats on an outside deck and some makeshift tables right on the highway facing the water. We ordered two platters of barbecued local oysters, clam chowder, garlic bread and beer, which we enjoyed at an outdoor table while taking in the sun.

Pure bliss, and a great way to end a great weekend with dear friends.
