Half Moon Bay

A few weekends ago, we had a free afternoon and an urge for a bit of adventure.

Though it was sunny at home, there was a familiar layer of fog over the Golden Gate, so Point Bonita was out.  (I WILL get there on a clear day before the year is over, though!)  So instead of North, we headed South, down the Great Highway.

The Cliff House and Ocean Beach 

The next thing we knew, we were driving down towards Half Moon Bay.

Perhaps a frustrated cyclist left this?

The sun returned right as we pulled off the road to visit a road-side farm stand.

Half Moon Bay:

The seaweed was particularly colorful.

We hiked out along the Bay towards the famous Mavericks surf spot, where we found a comfortable perch for a picnic lunch.  We like to live on the wild side.

Just like the last time we visited, the waves were small, so there weren't any surfers in the water.  We checked out the tide pools instead.


It was a relaxing afternoon by the Pacific.

Until next time, Mavericks.


  1. Look at that crab!! How cool! Love the birds-and-stoplight pic too. Missing the Bay Area, and you guys!

  2. That crab is already ready for Christmas. Sarah, I told you no jumping the gun on seasons!

    1. Nope, that's just nature telling you that you are wrong, Will! That crab will approve of tomorrow's post, take my word...

  3. Great weekend trip, and some sunshine to boot. Beats working every time.
