Less than 100 miles from Wellington is the Point Reyes Lighthouse. We haven't gone there recently. But I ran across these photos I took last time we went.
You have to park about a mile from the lighthouse and walk down hundreds of steps. Plus it's on the Northern California coast. So unless you're really lucky, it's going to be foggy and cold.
With little out buildings and rusty old fire hydrants.
Wellington is so beautifully situated, we can go from coastline to mountain peak. Countryside to city. We're spoiled, and I don't take it for granted.
