Bodega Bay is a small hidden fishing village that most people never come upon. My friends and I go on this crabbing adventure every year, so I grabbed my camera to make a short visual diary in hopes of revealing its hidden beauty. This trip means a lot to us and it was really fun to capture the memories this time. In Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”, Bodega Bay was portrayed as a small town covered with dark clouds and haunted by flocks of vicious birds. Though his movie leaves a big enough impact to make you flinch at every seagull that flies your way, I still wanted to a show a much more vibrant and diverse small town than the one we remember from his film. Bodega Bay’s striking scenery never ceases to amaze me every time I visit. With narrow roads stretching along every cliff side and beaches that go for miles, its inner beauty shines much more distinctly than the typical small town. It really is a rare and incredible place to visit, so I hope this video shows at least a small percentage of its unique atmosphere.
A huge thanks to the Debruin family for making this trip happen and letting all of us tag along for the ride.
