Chelsea’s Bday – Shuckin’!

Since Chelsea darling had another turning of age recently, we spent last Saturday celebrating by Oyster Shucking in Tomales Bay.  Chelsea had been before but it was a first for me and it was such a fun day experience.  It was a good weekend to head up there with Outside Lands going on.  Don’t get us wrong, we love music but having been at Outside Lands the past few years we were ready for something new.

Some people brought their own minuscule sauces which was pretty funny and cute.

Ever since my big horse trip in Bosnia, I’ve been chasing that fun riding and have been checking out new places to go riding trails.  A friend of mine had a great recommendation and wanted to go riding as well in Point Reyes, CA last weekend so we went here and had an awesome and beautiful ride with Susie and her beautiful Arabians.  She can accommodate all levels and has very well behaved horses.  It was a great chance to explore northern California in my most favorite way 🙂

On our way to the trail head, there were some great horse signs on the road.

My adorable horse was named, Cody.

The mountains and the views were stunning.

We rode through so many different terrains.

The redwoods were beautiful, too!

We packed the horses up to take them to the trail so we also put them back in after the ride.

We did about a 2hr ride and there were about 5x of us as guests.  The drive from San Francisco to Point Reyes was beautiful and the town is adorable with a little main street.  I can’t wait to go back and check out more of Susie’s trails!
