Point Reyes Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore

A Portion of Point Reyes Beach, Looking North

Point Reyes Beach begins at the Lighthouse area and runs for 10 miles in a northerly direction.  It is also called Ten Mile Beach (no surprise) and The Great Beach.    A better name might be Caution Beach because it can be a dangerous place.  A number of people have died along this stretch due to sneaker waves.  I believe it has also seen a number of shipwrecks.  I witnessed the crashed remains of one myself roughly 25 years ago.  I spoke to the survivors.  They were starting out on a voyage around the world.   They started from Oregon or Washington, I don’t recall for sure.  They didn’t get far, but the family survived.

    Wow!! Looks almost like it was painted, which is also the case with a large picture I have of
    Lances, of just one area of this beach. I haven’t seen it in person yet, but I will. Charl
