Tomales Bay is famous for its Oysters.

Tomales was recently in a PBS cooking series called Avec Eric

I will show you where we are now!


  1. You may keep the oysters - but isn't it a beautiful spot!

  2. Bobbie..
    hee hee..I am with Oysters for me!

  3. Hey Dawn looks like a beautiful place... However I love oysters. ☺☺☺ Great pictures! Come on over and visit me today… I posted some great videos of a house in Van Buren, Arkansas that had this fantastic light show… We ran across it while out looking at lights.
    Have Fun & Travel Safe

  4. I'm catching on my blog reading, and Dawn, I love following your travels. Good photos all, they give a feel for the land and the experiences. They're still a poor second to being there, but they get me longing for another trip west - soon. Jealously, I wonder where you are now!

  5. These are wonderful photos, and the Cormorant Island images are really interesting. Looks like an incredible place.
