travel  Day Trip: Point Reyes & Tomales Bay

Tomales Bay and the Point Reyes National Seashore are just an hour outside of San Francisco, in beautiful Marin County—but you’d never know you were so close to the city. With every turn the vistas grew wider and our cell reception grew weaker.

This is our new post-Easter snack or lunch. I think these would also be so lovely for entertaining. I would probably suggest toasting your bread and having everything prepared in advance such that you can top the tartines right before guests arrive (thus ensuring the bread stays crusty and your toppings stay chilled).

A crusty tartine we hope you enjoy—here’s how to make them…
