Travelogue: Sea Ranch

Sea Ranch   Sea Ranch is a stretch of land along the Pacific Coast in Sonoma County. The guiding principle of the community is to preserve the area’s natural beauty. Thanks to one architect’s vision, all of the houses are made out of natural wood and blend in with the surroundings, drawing inspiration from the landscape and even the direction of the wind. There are no street lights, all the plants are indigenous .  It’s easily one of my favorite places on earth, and I’d like to share it with you today.

Breakfast from Two Fish Baking Company. Their morning buns are the stuff of legend. The owners start baking at 2:30 am using only the freshest ingredients, and their pastries are known to sell out before 9 am. IMG_2711  Seal watching from the bluffs, using our super zoom camera.

  1. miss you guys!! so cute. and in the 10 years we’ve been friends.. i’ve never been to sea ranch!! must change that asap! 🙂

    • When I first saw and heard the seal, I thought the octopus was still alive and choking him. And then I realized that the seal was just a messy eater who was obviously not pleased with our spying.

  2. Love all of the links of things to do/eat at Sea Ranch! I felt like that seal needed a knife to eat that octopus! Amazing!
