Bodega Bay – Part 1

Recently I had the chance to spend a couple of days with some dear friends at their new home in Bodega Bay. Just a couple of hours north of San Francisco and within spittin’ distance of wine country this little town has so much character – part of which some may think is from the town being the location where Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds” was filmed. Ok, that’s interesting, but the reason the location was chosen is what made it interesting to Hitchcock and what still makes it interesting. Bodega Bay, sitting between the Pacific Ocean and the bay, has a lot of thick, heavy fog, a lot of birds and fish and a really interesting rocky surface. Never flat, the crooks and valleys grow some beautiful vegetation. I’m told I was there a week or so past the most interesting colours but, despite missing them, I saw some pretty interesting black and white on some local Belted Galloway cows, known affectionately as Oreo Cows.

People come to these cliffs to watch whales and birds, boat and hike, camp and picnic.
