Weekend Getaway: Sea Ranch - Timber Cove - Bodega Bay

Starting the year right with a weekend trip up north to where the ocean is :) Last weekend, I visited Sea Ranch, Gualala, Bodega Bay, and had a pleasant stay at Timber Cove Resort. Some photos from the trip if you'd like to see..

Any time we're driving up north, we'd always find excuses to stop by my favorite brunch place in Santa Rosa - The Naked Pig. It did take a little detour from our destination, but their bacon battered waffle and porchetta sandwich made it so SO worth it.

First stop - Sea Ranch. The Sea Ranch is a community of private homes with uniquely designed architecture along a 10-mile stretch of the Sonoma County coast. It felt surreal to see many of these architectural masterpieces sitting across the Pacific Ocean.

Neighboring town of Gualala has this hidden store that sells beautifully designed dinnerware and drinkware that's worth a visit.

The main reason for this trip is to stay at Timber Cove Resort. The plan was to do all the sightseeing in the morning and come back to hotel early enough to chill, read a book and catch the sunset from our room.

The view from our room. Can I stay here forever?

Each room comes with a Crosley record player. They have a library of vintage records near the front desk that you can pick and have it played in your room. How awesome is that?!

Enjoying the sunset from our room <3

Not long after the sun was set, we headed over to our dinner reservation at the Coast Kitchen which is located inside our resort. The food was surprisingly delicious. I ordered the mushroom pasta and my friend ordered the steak with chimichurri sauce :p

Later that night.. I caught Milky Way from my camera. It's always a rewarding trip when I get to photograph the Milky Way :)

Ahhh it's so hard to say goodbye to this place!!!

Bodega Bay is the location for exterior scenes in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and Potter School (photo above) is used as a backdrop in the film.

One final stop before heading back home - Spud Point Crab Co. The crab sandwich is AMAZING. I don't usually like sourdough but it actually tastes good with the crab.
