Today was so fun! 🌊
I helped out my friend Ali from picnic.potential and went out to dillonbeachresort to set up this surprise birthday picnic for curatesonomacounty.
Who wouldn’t want to take a trip out the coast and be a part of something like that 😍

I can’t wait to go back for a little staycation at dillonbeachresort. Those views are amazing 🙌🏼...
Irishman George Dillon and wife Mathilda founded Dillon Beach in 1858 (although some sources say it was later) and built an 11 bedroom hotel, restaurant, and general store.
In 1903, Dillon sold out to John Keegan with the agreement that the beach would always be named Dillon Beach. Keegan ran a stagecoach from Dillon Beach to Tomales where it met the train to pick up people who wanted to "take the air."
Eight years later, Keegan sold the holdings to the California Eucalyptus Plantation Company. In 1925, Ranchers Sylvester and Carrie Lawson leased the property and managed operations with family members adding Lawson Landing. The landing was promoted as “the Family Playground of Marvelous Marin County.”
From 2001-2018, Dillon Beach Resort was owned and operated by Fred and Nancy Cline. In April 2018, Mike Goebel purchased the resort which consists of a cafe, general store, and three beachfront cabins available to rent.

My girl, Olivia 🍋
This person brings me so much peace. I’ve never felt more understood or accepted with anyone. 🤍
Insanely grateful for her existence, our meeting, and her willingness to let me capture her, everywhere we go.

Yes, Chef! Chef Matt Elias from dillonbeachresort was here shopping at Surf Market today. We sent him home with a jar of our best-selling chilecrunch to drizzle on whatever strikes his fancy (hello eggs, oysters, roasted vegetables, tacos, aioli, soups, marinades and about a gajillion other things). Have you been to Coastal Kitchen at the dillonbeachresort ? Let Chef Matt’s hyper local and ultra seasonal menu take your palate and senses on a ride. Breathe in the salt air and witness the jaw dropping beauty of West Marin. Thanks for stopping by, Chef. Great to meet you. .

Last weekend, when we stayed at dillonbeachresort, we took full advantage of the beach being just steps down from the cottages.
Our beach day essentials are:
☀️ Beach umbrella or canopy
☀️ A large blanket for the ground
☀️ Plenty of towels
☀️ Sand toys, buckets and even the trusty snowball maker!
☀️ Cooler filled with drinks and food for the day
☀️ Beach chairs
☀️ Swimsuits (even though the water is 🥶) and coverups. I even brought a light jacket as there was a slight breeze.
