Everyone needs a place they can breathe...

Our Place is Bodega Bay...

When life in Suburbia begins to weigh on the Nellist family  we head directly for  our sleepy little fishing town on the Northern California Coast.  Jeremy, being raised in Sonoma County had always considered the North Coast one of his favorite places.  On our first date Jeremy introduced me to this amazing place and it quickly became one of mine as well.  I was raised in Southern California and have always loved the So. Cal beaches.  I will have to say the Nor Cal Coast has won my heart.  The rugged coast line, massive waves, smell of sea air and eucalyptus, the sound of the fog horn and the virtually deserted beaches are fuel for a weary soul.  In 2000 Jeremy and I were engaged and married on School House Beach in Bodega Bay.  The love affair continues and I believe has more than likely become part of the makeup in our children's DNA.
