We just completed the Walk the Bay hike and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a way to recharge and rejuvenate after this crazy past year. Our local guide Marie gave us the perfect meet and greet, explained the hikes, the unavoidable covid unexpected changes, and we appreciated her honesty and flexibility. It was comforting to have her check in with us daily about how we were doing, and we appreciated her telling us to not rush, to enjoy, and that is exactly what we did. We felt pampered when she would surprise us with fresh strawberries, or the warm chocolate chip cookies we hadn’t thought we would crave for dessert after lunch. She’s so knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor too. The inns were all unique, and it was fun to have a different experience every evening from the resort experience to the quaint bed and breakfast inn to the boutique inn, all with ocean views. Included in the tour was a morning boat tour in Elkhorn Slough where we learned about pelicans and their friends and saw over 60 otters including moms and babies having their breakfast. We now have unending questions about seabirds, sea life, sand dunes, sea otters, hang gliding, and hope we can take another slow adventure before too much time passes. Thanks Macs Adventure and Slow Adventure for a memorable week from two grateful, not too sore and happy travelers.
