Vacation 2005 – Monday, August 22

We got up and out from John and Jeff’s around 0800. John gave us very complicated directions out to the Golden Gate Bridge and Highway 1, but we managed to follow them without getting lost. We went to Point Reyes next, and out to the lighthouse there. We got some great pictures, and it was a cool drive. We also took an “Earthquake Hike” there, the highlight of which was a fence that had split apart when the fault line shifted 20 feet at one point. The fence just ended and started up again 20 feet to the north. Very impressive.

We then ended up at our first B&B of the week, the Elk Cove Inn. We were greeted with a basket of fruit (2 plums), cookies (2), and a half-bottle of chilled white wine. The room had port wine and chocolates waiting for us as well. The place is really cool with a neat view of the ocean (just not from our room, as we are in the “Ridgeview” room…less cost). Their restaurant is closed Monday and Tuesday nights, however, so we went up the street in Elk a little to Bridget Dolan’s, where I had a half-order of a enchilada and Cheryl had clam chowder and lasagna. We both had small salads as well. I am trying very hard not to gain weight on this trip.

By the time we got back to the B&B the lack of sleep had caught up to us and we were in bed, asleep, by 8:30 PM.

Did you and Cheryl hike down to the lighthouse? It was quite a distance from the entrance at the top of the cliff. Unfortunately,the entrance was closed when I visited.
