TOMALES BAY … is popular for countless spectacular sights, but for many visitors the bioluminescent dinoflagellates of the bay are at the top of the list, the small, very small, oh-so-super-tiny, unicellular organisms that sometimes give the water a mysterious glow. This glow is not a constant, but appears at certain times and draws kayakers in search of an ethereal experience on the waves. But there’s one more glow from Tomales Bay that is known to shimmer, and while this one isn’t in the H2O, it’s H2O-adjacent, at Nick’s Cove & Cottages. We are talking about the …
Creepy coastline, the line-up of gross pumpkins that atmospherically appear near the inn on a special October evening. The sockets offer a happy reminder of the season and at the same time appear in front of the incredible backdrop of the atmospheric water. When will this whimsical glow show give the beautiful bay an autumn fabulousness? In 2021, the magical date is Sunday, October 24th. The “Javelins & Jack O’Lanterns” event is free to attend and Nick’s Cove delivers the Squashery Destination (doubled its 2020 pumpkin order, which should make for an extra-ethereal presentation at nightfall).
THE PUMPKIN? They’re free, but first come, first served, too. So arrive as soon as possible before 2:00 p.m. Make it an autumn afternoon? That’s an important and happy element of the happening, and Nick’s Cove is ready to encourage that feeling with a series of seasonal sips and bites (just bring money to buy, of course). Also easy to pack? A jacket as temperatures can drop along Tomales Bay when an October evening gets colder.
