Point Reyes National Seashore Ship Wreck

Point Reyes National Seashore Ship Wreck

by Bessie Young

My eyes were stinging and it was pitch dark outside. I laid in bed wondering... should I, or shouldn't I.... will it even be worth it? I rolled over, turned on the light by my bed to help me wake up a little... and then I laughed. Will it be worth it, come on Bessie Please! Of Course it will be worth it! Jumping out of bed, I rushed to gather all my things from the hotel in order to get on the road and head out to my location of choice, the ship wreck out at Point Reyes National Seashore.

As I walked outside I looked up and the stars were still out nice and bright. First things first, coffee! It was about 5 in the morning in December which meant cold cold cold. I wasn't really expecting below freezing though. After I got my coffee and headed out to Point Reyes I noticed the degree, 29! What? 29 in the Bay Area of California? I was beyond excited that I pack like a girl scout and I had by down jacket with me :) . Yes, I even try to carry the kitchen sink ;) .

The drive took about an hour from Mill Valley, California. This state still amazes me with the diversity. In 3 hours you can be at pretty much any landscape you want... desert, mountains, or ocean. It is fantastic!

Getting to my spot of choice, there was still barely any light which was perfect. It gave me just enough time to scope out my location and find a place to set up. The pictures turned out phenomenal. I am a little obsessed with the sun rays coming over the bay, the ducks, and the little building all lit up in the background. Right now that one is my favorite.

Let me know which one is your favorite by commenting below!

This is an absolutely beautiful place to go, and if you haven't ever been, you should schedule something soon. The ship wreck is amazing, put the entire Point Reyes National Park is absolutely beautiful. Now keep in mind:

  1. There is no good way to get there
  2. There is no gas in the area
  3. Cell phone reception is sketchy at best.

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Don't forget to comment and subscribe.

Wishing you nothing but amazing adventures,
