Point Reyes National Seashore

I took a one day trip to Point Reyes National Seashore for my break yesterday, the Saturday right before the autumn quarter begins. For some reason I wanted to see the Pacific ocean; I occasionally feel like seeing some spacious sceneries for a change. Point Reyes National Seashore is one of the park preserves that are not so far from Stanford University.

Unfortunately the weather wasn’t good; it was cloudy and foggy. But still I enjoyed taking a walk around Point Reyes Station and the Lighthouse. Here are several pictures:


There are several shops in Point Reyes Station. A store clerk in the bookstore in the middle of this picture was kind enough to give me a free map for the seashore and tell me the way to my destination, the Lighthouse.


This is Point Reyes Beach that goes along with the seashore. I wish it had been sunny.


You can come across wild animals like this deerlet.


These are trees which I think were probably bent due to the wind from the ocean.


The Lighthouse was encompassed with a fog. If it is sunny, one should be able to see the roundness of the earth with the sea horizon.


I saw some water birds pursuing fish in a marshland on my way back home from the Lighthouse.
