West Marin Weekend

This weekend, Doc and I spent almost the full weekend in West Marin.

We went to a dinner event at Heiðrún Meadery featuring the food of Fine & Rare paired with Heiðrún meads. It was pretty magical having such a meal in Heiðrún’s gardens, surrounded by bees floating around and flowers everywhere. At night we even got to roast marshmallows over a fire!

Since we were anticipating drinking a lot (since it was a mead event, after all), we had also booked a room at Ligonberry Farms, where they raise sheep and alpaca for their wool and fiber making! This way we didn’t have to drive back in such a state. This was also quite relaxing and magical.

Then on Sunday, we did a short ~5 mile hike in Point Reyes National Seashore. And we even got back to The City on time for Doc to give his photography talk!
