Point Reyes  
I did a short and hurried trip to Point Reyes this afternoon. The high tide came in early and I missed out on the tide pool shootout. And then I almost ran out of gasoline searching for a place to refuel. Couldn't have gotten worse right? It did. Near the light house, I saw a feral cat by the roadside with a kill. I first thought that the cat had gotten itself a ground squirrel, but it was later identified as a young Long-tailed Weasel! I saw an adult weasel later in the day, but it quickly ran away before I could pull over and take a shot.

I stumbled upon this picture while searching google images. I live maybe 300 yards away from that boat. My neighbor and I played on it everyday as kids. Never have i seen a better picture of it. Absolutely breathtaking. And the lighthouse photo is epic too. Good work. Go to the Olema visitor center and get a trail map. If you don't mind a hike you can reach the top of Mt. Wittenburg from either the visitor center or a short drive to the Sky Camp trailhead for a shorter hike to the peak. When u reach the almost top the trail (marked by a sign) splits left if u come from sky camp or right if u come from olema. Instead of going to the peak make a right if u come from sky and left if u come from olema where the trail T's and walk through the pine trees there. After a very short walk the trees will thin and open to a huge field. From there is an awesome view of Drakes Bay. Chimmney Rock, Drakes Beach, the Drakes Bay Estero, and Limantour Beach all are visible in a breathtaking view of the area. It's wild up there so it should make for an interesting photo shoot!!
