Pt. Reyes Day 2

This photo (that's wet sand) shows how windy it was on Drakes Beach this morning. Unfortunately the legendary Drakes Beach Caf√© was closed on Tuesdays. So that meant we had to hit the Pine Cone Diner (below), which is actually one of our favorite places to eat in the whole universe.

There's a store in Pt. Reyes called Cabaline where I bought a pair of pants and Tom bought a hat. I could buy all my clothes and shoes for ever more at this one store.

Barbara and Larry introduced us to the inn where we stayed. I loved it. Everything worked. There was a fantastic bar and restaurant right next door run by the same people.

Only one bad thing happened. The people who stayed in our room the night before left the alarm set to 5:00 a.m. After it blasted Tom couldn't go back to sleep. But then he remembered that today was The Day. The day the new books by Alan Furst and Stieg Larsson were downloadable. So he started right in on the new Alan Furst while I slept 2 or 3 more hours.
