happy memorial day!

PointReyes7Over the long Memorial Day weekend last year, Matt, Layla and I headed up to Tomales Bay Oyster Company in Point Reyes for some oysters and sunshine.  The oysters are harvested from the bay and sold by the sack, unopened – self-service style, with a shucker if you need one.  Even though I have had a few, um…reactions…to oysters, I will never give up on them.  Sitting there, under the sun, on the bank of the bay, shucking and eating oysters and sipping champagne – it was my food obsessed version of heaven.  I am so grateful that places like this exist, and I hope I can convince Matt to go back here very soon.  Hope you have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend!

  1. Have a wonderful long weekend, looks heavenly on the beach and love your cute little white furry friend (Frenchie right?)

      Thank you Suzanne! Yes, she is a Frenchie, but often gets mistaken for a pug (and twice, even a pig!) xo

      • Lol, It’s funny Izzy and Nando are often confused for Frenchies and once someone thought Nando was a Vietnamese pot belly pig.

        Haha! That’s incredibly specific! When we were at the park one day with Layla, a little boy looked up at her with a huge smile on his face and screamed “a PIG!” We, along with his parents, burst into laughter. It was absolutely adorable.

    That’s THE best way to enjoy oysters, straight out of the water!
