Big Family Vacation in Point Reyes, Northern California Coast

Five families. Five kids. One pregnant lady. One cat. A multi-day vacation on the idyllic, windblown, wild Northern California coast.

That’s how I would describe this epic New Year’s vacation between a group of longtime family friends, including my own family. The days were spent in equal parts adventuring around the breathtaking landscapes of the Point Reyes National Seashore, cooking magnificent meals, and chilling in hoodies and pajamas in an architecturally classic Inverness vacation rental home nestled in the woods. Foggy mornings, sunny beach days, easy strolls around town, evenings around the Scrabble board—I loved every moment of every day documenting these families’ love, intimacy, and friendships.
