Exploring Bodega Bay

Bodega Bay is a shallow, rocky inlet of the Pacific Ocean on the coast of northern California in the United States. It is approximately 5 mi (8 km) across and is located approximately 40 mi (60 km) northwest of San Francisco and 20 mi (32 km) west of Santa Rosa

Before we head out to Northern California for the Camping  trip, yes I am finally going camping, T decided to leave a day early from Monterey and meet some of his old friends who are currently living in Sebastapol.  We got there around noon and since both were still working we decided to explore around Bodega Bay first.

We were supposed to head out to Doran Beach as suggested by N but we got the wrong turn and ended up in this area instead.

We did not give up though. We still got a few hours before dinner time so we drove a bit further and finally found Doran Beach.


Water that came during high tide?

Fog was slowly coming in so it was a bit nippy already. The water was cold but there were still people doing some surfing .

It was a relaxing day. We did not stop in downtown Bodega which probably good decision or I might have ended up getting more stuff that we don’t really need , like maybe more mugs 🙂

Another part of California that most tourist don’t usually see.

Any thoughts?
