Those Places Thurday – Drake’s Beach

Located north of San Francisco, Drake’s Beach is part of the Point Reyes National Seashore. The beach is named after the explorer Sir Francis Drake who may have put ashore to repair his ship, the Golden Hinde, during the summer of 1679. Many local landmarks are named in honor of Drake’s exploration of the area.

Point Reyes holds a special place in our family’s history as it is where my husband and I spent our honeymoon. More recently the family has come to enjoy playing on the beach and exploring the countryside. On our most recent trip, the beach was engulfed in a cloud bank.
