That's all you have to show us? Surely, with such a tempting subject you can give us a bit more!

I agree. This is just cruel.

Maybe he's too busy sailing to post more yet.

Well, sometimes you just sit down to leward, kick up your feet and smell the roses...
Life is good.

Well, it was a bit more peaceful a day earlier in the am. Heading ENE from Marshall Beach.

Life is good. It sure beats the alternatives. Didja go to Tony's for barbecued oysters?

We had oysters right on the beach for days - fixed every way you can think of, from Oysters Rockefeller (Dutch Oven), bbq in Sake, to raw.
It's just a short hop across the bay to the Hog island Oyster Co. which leads to frequent raids on the place
maybe five hundred oysters?

Y'know, you really should get some kind of subsidy, or tax credit, or something with that boat for improving the scenery wherever you go. Old Albert certainly could draw 'em.

Dear Lord but that's pretty.

Here are some going Northbound along the Inverness shoreline..
Is that at the state park?

Heart's Desire? I haven't been there for a while, but God, it's a lovely place.
A friend of mine lived up the hill from the two little beaches closer to Inverness. They had much charm. Very secluded - no parking lot nearby.
But a long way from Hog Island Oysters!

This picture is Marshall beach. On the far shore, just to the right of the mainmast is Hog Island Oyster Co.
Did anyone know Clayton Lewis (http://www.ptreyeslight.com/oldstories/clayton921.html)? This was his front yard...

Here's my photo of sailing south to the beach ramp at Marconi from this year's TSCA Marshall Beach campout. Nice downwind run and I was smart enough to leave the jib down, as the wind picked up and was plenty by the end of the sail.

Lovely thread. Thanks, y'all! Did I spell that right?
That pullin' boat sure looks familiar!
Funny thing about Tomales Bay. Every time I've been there it's been empty, or nearly so. I always wonder why it's not full of boats and activity at least 10 months of the year.
Here's a shot from the Inverness Yacht Club in January 2005:
