I love to eat. I’m kind of a picky eater, I generally won’t try things that look squishy, slimy, or different. So, you can imagine it took years for me to try an oyster and they’re actually pretty good. But Saltwater has this magical mixture made of shallots, garlic, champagne vinegar, and lemon juice that adds something special to the already tasty oyster. I wanted to do a mini-review of the restaurant that focuses more on the ambience than the food itself.
(First off, they change their menu daily! We went two days in a row and had amazing meals both times)
(A mini patio is lit with Edison bulbs in antique looking wired frames)
(The restaurant itself is in a home restored to serve as a dining area complete with a porch)
(It is dimly lit with dozens of tea lights)
Quaint places like this are my favorite and in the city we certainly don’t have a shortage! But some of the best places are tucked away not so far from home.
This weekend we spent a day enjoying the beautiful Tomales Bay. Luckily, the weather was perfect as we kayaked and took in the marvelous views. If you’re a fan of oysters you should take a visit to this tiny town and enjoy nature, wines, and famous Cowgirl Creamery.
(The fog can roll in without any notice but I do love the way that looks too)
(We took to the ocean to see what we could make of the sunset)
(Elephant Seals joined us on the sand)
(Pieces of birchwood that Nick wouldn’t let me take home)
(Yup, it was cold but those are my favorite kinds of beaches. The most beautiful ones I have seen are in the Pacific Northwest)
(From Elephant Seals on the beach to cows in the valley)
A beautiful end to a great day!
