We spent a weekend not too long ago at a really cute town on Tomales Bay, in Marin County, up near Pt. Reyes. It is a gorgeous area near the California coastline, but slightly inland on a large bay (famous for its oysters):
Marshall is a tiny place, with just a couple of restaurants, a few people, and really nothing else. We had lunch one day at the Marshall Store:
The best choice there - clam chowder in a paper cup:
Highly recommended. We are definitely going back.
