Sausalito is one of my favorite cities in the bay area! During the Thanksgiving break, Fred and I hit Heath Ceramics, my absolute favorite shop for tableware and tile. They make their pottery here at their Sausalito site and have an annual sale every November with everything in the store discounted 20%. The best part of the Heath annual sale are the seconds(tableware that is not perfect). Heath discounts the seconds and then takes an additional 20% off. The seconds have some minor flaws but are totally beautiful for using at home or giving as a gift. There are one of a kind and seasonal pottery too. Melissa, my younger daughter, said that she likes them better because they have character.
Beautiful Heath Ceramics seconds
The second reason to visit Sausalito is Fish. Fish is a seafood restaurant(obviously) that has my favorite Portuguese red chowder. It’s a tomato based clam chowder with linguica, cilantro, smoked paprika, and watercress. It is simply delicious! Fish uses sustainable fish and everyone eats outside on picnic tables and drinks out of Mason jars. The view of the Marina is just beautiful! Fish is a cash only restaurant but they have an ATM inside.
