Bodega Bay

Took my Grandma out to Bodega Bay for her birthday this weekend for a nice hike on Bodega Head among the wildflowers. The gray whales are migrating up the west coast right now, which made it even more special.

Here are a few more sights of the coast and wildflowers:

Wild Iris

Wild iris!! So amazing.

Indian Paintbrush and the breaking waves

Indian paintbrush (Castilleja affinis or littoralis) on the edge of the cliff.

Buttercups on Bodega Head

Buttercups (Ranunculus californicus) —so shiny.

Tall Ship in Bodega Bay

Tall ships were in the bay giving short tours. Fascinating to watch them turn the ships using the wind.
