San Francisco #4

Station House CafePart of every trip to San Francisco is getting an Ocean fix.  Like drug addicts we go to smell the salty air and seaweed.  There’s nothing like the feel of ocean breezes and hearing the rhythmic splash of waves on the shore.  This trip was no different.

On Thursday we went north out of the City toward highway One.  This means going north over the Golden Gate Bridge on the 101.  Just past Sausalito we took the One which goes past Muir Beach to Stinson Beach.  At Stinson we walked the long white beach on what turned out to be a warm, sunny day.

From Stinson we went out to Inverness on Point Reyes.  We wanted to see what was left of Manka’s, a place we’ve dined in the past which recently burned.  Manka’s wasn’t the sorta place we’d go to very often, just when we wanted to do something really special.  We read recently that Prince Charles and Camilla were visitors to Manka’s. Food and Wine Magazine called Manka’s, “One of America’s fifty best hotel restaurants.”

Then we went to Point Reyes Station, a few more miles north.  Our objective there was to eat dinner at the Station House Cafe.  While we killed some time before dinner Bev found a knitting shop and bought herself a neat scarf.  Interesting what you find in out of the way places.

We got back to our hotel in San Francisco about 7:30.  It was a good day.
