Abbott’s Lagoon Trailhead

Abbotts Lagoon

Point Reyes National Seashore has long been a draw for us. This beautiful and protected piece of coastline offers pristine hikes, expansive beaches, and up-close wildlife.  Our recent trip introduced us to Abbotts Lagoon,  an easy 2-mile walk to the ocean – see for yourself the beauty this amazing spot has to offer.

Well, in addition to the park there are actually a couple of other things that pull us to the region.  The funky and hip towns of Olema and Pt. Reyes along with the downright delicious fragrance of BBQ oysters wafting on the breezes.

Mendocino College Graduation 2017

Working with the Mendocino College Foundation is always fun and rewarding…every time we create a video for them we are left with the sense of having done some good for the young people in our county. The mission of the Mendocino College Foundation is to cultivate, support and raise funds for the benefit of the students of Mendocino College and they work at this every day.
This video covers a small part of their 2017 Scholarship Awards Ceremony and we were thrilled to be a part of capturing this moment.
