During all the years we lived in Sonoma County, California, I rarely missed stopping off at Bodega Head, anytime we went to nearby Doran Beach.
I still love this spot and still stop here every time I come back to Sonoma County.
Bodega Head is located about 20 miles west of Santa Rosa and 40 miles northwest of San Francisco. This rocky outcrop has spectacular views even from the parking lot. You don’t even have to get out of the car if you don’t want to!
ZD McGee spotted a lone seal napping on a small rock down below in the water. Needless to say, there were also the ever present gulls circling above, waiting for an opportunity to snatch someone’s lunch.
A small path leads down to the beach for anyone willing to make this steep climb.
Despite the sunshine it was rather cold and blustery once we got out of the car.
This place is always crowded on weekends, and during the whale migration season.
Watching and listening to the surf always helps me relax and clear my mind.
Where is your favorite unwinding spot?
