Happy 5th of July!

In honor of Independence Day, Mr. Frisby had the 5th off work. We've had a stressful few months, so we decided to head out for a day trip to get away and have some fun. Our destination was Point Reyes. We picked a hike that we thought would be fun and, since the trailhead was near the Point Reyes Lighthouse, we decided to check out the lighthouse since we were in the vicinity. It was a beautiful day, but as we got close to the coast in Point Reyes National Seashore, you wouldn't know it. It was very foggy and freezing and we could see why a lighthouse was necessary there. We obviously weren't dressed very appropriately. Thank goodness we brought jackets. We still had a great time, though, and it was a fun little day trip.

That's me on our hike. In the background is Drake's Bay with the Lifeboat House. That's where the earliest version of the Coast Guard would launch the lifeboats for rescue when there were shipwrecks at the point.

PR is our "go-to" local destination when we want to get away. Good food, beautiful sights, nice people...we love it!

What a fun little outing you had there! I don't think I have ever been there. I like how you guys like to go explore different parts of the bay.
