Trips, by definition, are brief periods of travel away from the norm. Perhaps to extend the experience, so it isn't as brief, I create itineraries. They typically follow the same format: where to Stay (and how to get there), where to Eat, and what to Do. Here's what I put together for our weekend trip to Tomales Bay, followed by some photos from our trip:
