Schooner Gulch State Beach is my favorite beach in the world. It’s so otherworldly. There are two locations that have this geological formation of perfectly rounded boulders: New Zealand and Mendocino County.

I was so excited to show this amazing spot to my god daughter when she visited in December. Unfortunately, the minus tide was really late in the day and it was getting dark, so we didn’t have a chance to walk the whole beach, but we climbed up to the bluffs and looked north and down on the beach. With a passing winter storm, this was a breathtaking yet somewhat ominous view. I love how the coast offers different perspectives every time you visit.

Point Arena has some of the best rockfish fishing anywhere! On Sunday, we were lucky enough to be invited by Captain Kane to prospect for some salmon and rockfish on his Farallon. Unlike other harbors, there is no ramp at Arena Cove. Instead, the boats are lowered into the water by a hoist. This is a little unnerving to watch the first time you see it.

The salmon fishing wasn’t very successful, but the rockfish did their part. With five people, we came back with a nice box of fish
