Tomales Bay Escape

In August I was lucky enough (very lucky) to stay at this incredible house in Marshall, a small town on Tomales Bay.  The house is a converted coal & feed store which sits between the highway and the water and amongst about 6 buildings that make up the town.

This is the view from the upstairs.

The house is clearly designed for parties… and has high enough ceilings that you can have a deer inside, with a pearl necklace.

This isn’t really the kitchen… this is the party kitchen downstairs.

Hog Island Oyster Co. is a few steps away.

The town of Marshall.

San Francisco travels to the country.

The blue oyster gloves.

Back at the house we had borrowed some kayaks that we took out onto the bay.

The boat house off the deck opens up onto the water.  My Uncle Perry fulfilled his dream (that he never knew he had) of fishing while lying in bed (and drinking a beer).

Oysters + Anchor + Crystal

Fresh tomatoes, basil and lemon cucumber from the garden.

stay tuned for part II…when the sun goes down the food comes out….
