Drakes Bay

Drakes Bay, Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin, CA. During his circumnavigation of the world, English seaman Francis Drake anchors here and claims the territory for Queen Elizabeth I. Calling the land “Nova Albion,” Drake remained on the California coast for a month to make repairs to his ship, the Golden Hind, and prepare for his westward crossing of the Pacific Ocean.
