“Oysters oysters oysters I once ate 77 and I only stopped because someone made me or else I would have kept going. I will break that record one day. There’s nothing more fun than going out to Marshall and just eating oysters.. and the view doesn’t hurt either.”

Natural Feature
“A serene waterfront region with oyster farms, beach side parks and good local seafood restaurants; also a perfect place for stand up paddle or kayaking. Bring a cooler of ice and wine then buy as many dozen as you want for a picnic on the beach. We recommend Tomales Bay Oyster Company or Hog Island Oyster Company.”

Bakery
“Big flavors served in a space where bicyclists and motorcyclists, ranchers and fishermen, residents and tourists bond over simple pleasures, like the sweet smell of cinnamon or that deeply satisfying first bite into a fresh from the oven Gorgonzola Cheddar Twist. Made in small batches with local love. Psst... it is the closest to Shorehouse!”
