Dillon Beach Retreat

Friday morning I scurried about preparing, packing, and picking up friends for a quick weekend retreat to Dillon Beach.

The six of us packed into two cars and pointed our noses west at about 10:30. First stop was a little Italien deli in Petaluma, less than two hours drive from home. I didn’t take any photographs, but I did buy a bar of dark chocolate with hazelnuts. (for emergency purposes only)

After a nice lunch of hot pastrami, and a good stretch, we hit the road again. Arriving at the coast, we unpacked, laced up our tennies, and scooted down the hill to the beach.

It was threatening to rain and more, according to the news, but we found it warm in spite of the clouds.

We took a stroll down the waterfront seeking shells and other interesting tidbits.

Jellyfish and…..

crab

After our walk, we retired to “Windsong” for a light supper featuring a delicious corn chowder, fresh sourdough, and “Arnold Palmers”.
