Lucy, Jessica, Joni and I hiked to Alamere Falls in the Point Reyes National Seashore. We had to climb down a cliff, past two smaller falls, to the beach where the main falls pours over the cliff, onto the beach, and into the Pacific. We then walked for a mile on the wild and deserted beach. On the trails above the lakes, we enjoyed the multitude of wildflowers, beautiful lakes and ponds and the unique, native California forests of the coast. Afterward, famished, we ate wonderful California salads and seafood at the Parkside Café in Stinson Beach. The place had that eccentric Northern California atmosphere and the waiter was a bit inebriated.
