It was 1000 degrees today, the first day of October. We headed out to the coast after school to cool off and watch the sunset. Dillon Beach is where Bodega Bay meets Tomales Bay, due west of Petaluma, a stones throw from Pt.Reyes. It's a quiet town, with colorful vacation rentals sitting atop the cliffs. Driving out of town you see white barns and black cows dotting the coastline. In a word, it's serene.
