Recently, I had a guest call from the Breakers Inn hotel in Gualala. He was interested in exploring and doing something unique in the area. He even purchased a local Fish & Game permit so he could collect mussels and eat some local fare! We decided to hit Bowling Ball Beach. He had never seen it and wanted something memorable. My husband Phil and I joined him on a great 2 hour tour! We enjoyed great conversation and a wonderful evening! As we finished the tour we watched the sun begin to set in the West and then we brought him to a location where he could collect mussels to cook. I love an adventurous spirit like that. It is so contagious in such a good way! Here is his photo (a terrific perspective of bowling ball beach) and his review... Thank you, Kwan. Please come again! Your Hawaiian spirit was truly a pleasure .... Mahalo!
If you are truly looking to step 'out of the 'box' on your time away, give yourself and soul ... some time aside to spend with Margaret and discover her 'unbeaten path' to the hidden jewels of the area ... this can truly be an unforgettable experience. - Kwan, Bay Area resident & Hawaiian transplant
He also included the view from his hotel room - WOW! A beautiful view of the Gualala river in the foreground with the Pacific Ocean in the background (and, of course, our ever friendly local seagull hanging out on the deck at right). He also shared some pics of the mussels he harvested and shared with some locals at St. Ores restaurant. Now that's my idea of traveling the coast!
