November 2018 Highway 1 Bodega Bay Recap

November 10, 2018

Hosts - Anne and Dave Sitter

We met at 9:00 am at Philz Coffee in the Corte Madera Town Center.  We had 32 cars.  

It was a smoky day due to the fires in Paradise, but we decided to forge ahead.  After leaving Philz we headed back south down 101 to Highway 1 through Mill Valley.  We took some side streets through Mill Valley neighborhoods onto Panoramic Highway.  The views were beautiful but not as good as they would have been without the smoke.  We arrived on highway 1 in Stinson Beach and headed north on highway1.  We were in two groups but managed to catch up and become one large group once on Highway 1.  

We followed highway 1 through to Point Reyes Station where we made an impromptu stop at Point Reyes Vineyards.  We were able to taste a few sparkling wines and purchase if we wanted to.  The proprietor opened early for us and allowed us to use both his restrooms to get everyone accommodated.  

We headed back north onto highway 1 through Tomales Bay and the small town of Tomales up to Bodega Bay where we stopped at The Tides for lunch.  We were there for about 2 hours when the run officially ended.  After the run Simon led the group who elected to go on a drive around Bodega Bay for some photo opportunities.  After that he led the remaining group who elected to go to a wine tour and tasting at Fort Ross Vineyards about 30 minutes north of Bodega Bay.
