Happy St. Patrick's Day! Do You Celebrate the Holiday?
I normally don't celebrate this holiday but if I'm invited out I can be a very good party girl. I do like hearing about the traditional foods consumed during these festivities. What dishes do you enjoy? And all the silliness in dress and behavior, love that! Anything for fun. Does your town have a parade?
I'll be leaving mid morning to find the SFKossack birders later today, it will be a two hour drive but a beautiful one. I plan on not wearing any green since I like being pinched. See detail's of lineatus's event below for more information.
SFKossacks Welcome realalaskan with Birding in Point Reyes
TIME: 9:00 AM
LOCATION: Point Reyes National Seashore
1 Bear Valley Road • Point Reyes Station for general location purposes. See details listed below:
Meet at Bear Valley Visitor center parking lot at 9:00 AM by the Earthquake Trail. This is the larger lot across the road from the center itself, and the trailhead is by the very luxurious bathrooms. We'll walk the Earthquake trail, then head out the Point to the north. (Shuttle service rules makes lighthouse/Chimney Rock too much of a hassle.) I think picnic-type lunch is easiest logistically, but lineatus is open to suggestions (especially if the weather isn't as warm as it's been all winter...)
After that, Five Brooks Pond for a nice walk, then down to Bolinas Lagoon, including a walk around Pine Gulch and optional side trip to Keith Hansen's studio. We will finish around 4 (maybe a little later if we go to Keith's).
With this itinerary, it will be fairly easy to accommodate those who only have time for a half-day - morning or afternoon. If you wanted to do a half day, arriving in mid-day, kosmail me with your cell # and ETA and I can let you know where we'll be at that point.
For those of you going via Pt. Reyes Station in the morning, I highly recommend coffee and pastries from Toby's Feed Barn in PRS, next to the post office. omgamazing!
