Leaving Hillsborough we stopped to check out the Headlands in San Francisco for some stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge popping out of that majestic SF fog.
::the Headlands. Not too shabby, San Fran::
And the Cali coast winds on…
I could stare at these shores forever.
On the road again, on the road again. Next stop to lay our heads down was the Inn at Cobbler Hill (a splurge night for us at $175 plus tax). We arrived during wine hour and were treated to a few glasses of Chenin Blanc and some light h’or d’oeuvres on the house. This place is spectacular – phenomenal service, beautiful grounds, and some stunning coastal views along the headlands. In the main area there are chickens hanging out – including one I affectionately named Boots With The Fur – and they even leave chicken feed in little bags in the rooms for you to feed them!
Y’all know I love my animals. There’s also a llama pasture you can walk through. Plus there are 3 little trails on property. One down to the beach… AMAZING. We walked down before sunset, it was maybe a half mile round trip, but down in this little cove you are surrounded by beautiful rocks and a pretty stellar ocean view. We even saw some sea otters (or were they seals?) poking their heads out as they swam around the bay.
We picnic-ed in our room for dinner, enjoying a bottle of red wine we had brought with us from LA, some fantastic fennel pollen salami, local brie and crackers. They also left little fresh baked brownies in the room, and in the entrance area there is a constant supply of free homemade cookies and coffee/tea/cocoa.
The next morning we woke early and walked a different path out to the headlands. Talk about stunning coastlines.
Shortly after we returned to the room we were greeted by staff that delivered a three course breakfast in picnic basket to your door. Fantastic quality. Fresh squeezed organic OJ, Baked local pears with anise-hyssop and berries, Mediterranean quiche, homemade zucchini bread, coffee/tea/cocoa. The basket also included a little note with the weather forecast for the day.
