Carpool and Lunch food doc
Friday night- I will volunteer Seth, Tristan, myself and whoever can get there early to get dinner ready. That way those who will be arriving later can pitch their tent and we all can have a nice relaxing dinner then watch the sunset. Menu for dinner will be Irish cheese (goes great with red wine), crackers, apple slices, chicken and beef skewers, beans and dinner rolls. We should have plenty of time for playing music, composing new songs, singing, dancing, games, drinks and s’mores! Please bring a bottle of wine to share and your favorite drinks. I have a case of bottled water ready (35 ct), bring some if you think you'll need more.
Saturday Morning – Those who arrived late the night before will be in charge of getting breakfast together. We'll eat scrambled eggs, ham steaks, blueberry muffins and hot chocolate (if you need coffee or tea please bring your own). After having an early morning breakfast we can go out and explore the beach, take pictures, make sand castles, fly kites, get buried in the sand, play Frisbee. Check out time is Noon. Pack up should start at 10:30-11:00 am. Midday snack will be strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, Greek yogurt and almond/cranberry granola.
Saturday Lunch – We can park on the day use section for free on Saturday and take the Sonoma Coast Trail to Goat Rock Road for a short hike and lunch.Everyone please bring food to share for Saturday’s lunch. Something simple that can be easily kept in a cooler. Mid afternoon snack will consist of tangerines, a banana and a trail mix bar.
The Kortum Trail extends from Blind Beach to Wright's Beach. Access (parking) is midway along the trail at Shell Beach at Wright's Beach. The trail travels along headlands and down to a few beaches. You can also travel inland from Shell Beach by taking the Pomo Canyon Trail. It begins at Route 1, just across the pull-off entrance to Shell Beach and ends at Pomo Canyon Environmental Camp.
The final trail of note is at the northern edge of the park. Vista Point is a short loop trail that goes to - you guessed it! - Vista Point. There is a parking lot and picnic tables at the trailhead.

An alternative to the above is to drive to Bodega Dunes Campground for those who want to take a shower. We can have lunch there and explore that area for future camping trips.
Saturday Dinner - I would love to have dinner at the Tides Restaurant in Bodega Bay, but if you prefer to head back to Santa Rosa and find a place to have dinner there, we can also do that
