A beautiful drive up the lagoon. We saw lots of seals with their babies, basking on the sandbanks and lots of little egrets. There is also the Audubon Canyon nature reserve. You can then go back to San Francisco via Stinson Beach or up over the Tamalpais Mountain Park. Either way is lovely.
Seal & pup resting place. Was able to see lots of animals. Also went to beach in Olema, CA. Excellent for shell collecting. A local beach with very few tourists. Highway 1 to these locations provided beautiful views.
The Bolinas Lagoon has stopping points and pull offs all the around it. I gather a lot of folks just view it from Stinson Beach, so are missing out. As you travel to Bolinas, but still in Hwy 1 pull over to see the hundreds of seals resting at the sand bar in the middle. Low & high tide mark...
