A little side story… When I was young I contracted a very serious illness that stripped me from experiencing life as a normal teenager and left me not walking for years. I obviously felt miserable, limited, not free. Years later after many surgeries and feeling never the same, but a lot better, I promised myself a life full of adventures, travel, and as many perfect days as possible.
Well, this one goes down for the ages. It was a simple day involving me riding my vespa to Bodega Bay along the Pacific Coast Highway. The route spans miles of rugged beaches and sandy coves, some of the best in California.
Onward to the town of Marshall where the Hog Island Oyster Farm resides. It is here where I bought 2 dozen Sweet Water Oysters to go and found a peaceful, quiet cove where I built a tiny fire for an oyster barbecue. The rest is history and the pictures tell the best stories.
