On Sunday, we had a mini-road trip headed North on Hwy 1, towards Bodega Bay. Lunchtime! Like usual, I am never one to follow the crowd, and am always looking for something just a little funky and fun. (thank goodness Tom is such a good sport!) We found what we were looking for at "The Marshall General Store", located in Marshall on Tomales Bay. This was by far one of our best choices to have an incredibly fresh seafood lunch (and beer!) and create another great memory.
Here's the scoop; nothing fancy. Find a place somewhere on the road to park, next to the general store and marina, then walk in and order your lunch.
Fresh seafood - oyster bar outside. We ordered: Halibut Tacos, fresh cerviche (YUM!!) and the proverbial dozen oysters on the half shell. Tom, the oyster aficionado, declared these to be the best that he's ever had! The trick is, if you want a beer, you can't drink it on their deck or in the small sun porch. Your choice is to grab a seat at one of the tables set up alongside the road. (It's only about 10 feet wide - be careful!)
Have to love this view though, wind blowing, sailboats bobbing in the bay, the tide surging toward the shore with the sun shimmering off of the water. Wow, another perfect Sunday.
