Oct 6, 2016 - Half Moon Bay

10/6 Mari was right on time and the drive was not bad even at rush hour! A great chance to catch up... Mari is the chicken caretaker at Anada farm, where she has raised a couple hundred laying chicks to adulthood. They sell the eggs locally, premium price since they are ALL organic and free ranging! When we arrived we went for MX at Tres Amigos, returning to put the hens to bed just in time! When we went to close the chicken house door a raccoon scuttled out! Played Cribbage and lost both times! Boo Hoo! 10/7 Up at a reasonable hour to...

May 13, 2015 - Mooning Over California...

There are several reason why I think west coast beaches are superior to east coast beaches. West coast beaches are stunning! The breathtaking cliff sides, the spellbinding crashing surf, the sweet smell of salt air and simply no biting, annoying insects. The west coast beaches are cooler - a wonderful place to escape year round. On the west coast there is no high heat, humidity, bugs or the smell of decaying vegetation to drive you into an air conditioned refuge. We love the west coast and our stop at Half Moon Bay State Park is a perfect...

Jun 15, 2012 - Vers Half Moon Bay

Une journée de route nous attend. Nous nous rendons sur le bord de l'Océan Pacifique à Half Moon Bay situé au sud de San Francisco. Le début du trajet est intéressant avec de beaux paysages, des montées, descentes et courbes font qu'on ne s'ennuie pas. Ça se gâte ne prenant l'autoroute même si elle a 5 voies, ça demeure une autoroute. En plus, il fait 34C. On traverse la baie de San Francisco avant de refaire un peu de montagne et finallement arriver à notre destination. La température a dramatiquement changé car il fait environ 15C et un...

Mar 6, 2012 - The coast!

From Bakersfield, our mission -- for reasons too complex to explain here -- was to get to Half Moon Bay, south of San Francisco, in the most efficient fashion, which involved Hwy 58 through town, Hwy 99 to Famosa, west on Hwy 46 (a lovely drive through blooming orchards of almond trees) across to I-5 and then north. North past mega farms and massive feedlots and desperate signs from farmers blaming Congress for water woes all the while heading directly into mighty winds of 30-40 mph which, in one place, looked suspiciously like a small...

Jul 21, 2011 - Coastal Bike Trail and Barb's

The last day of our big adventure! Zack and our newest grandpuppy left in the morning. The rest of us decided that we'd go for a bike ride to Barb's Fish & Chips-8 miles round trip. Logan definitely has improved his riding skills since last year and although his cousin, Nate, had a single speed bike, the kid did great. Although he did ask me, how far did the bike path go. Aimee and I both thought the ride seemed easier than last year. Maybe because it was overcast? We both have some pretty good sunburns from yesterday. Actually, this trip...

Jul 19, 2011 - Half Moon Bay-our last hurrah

So we left Vacaville and headed to cooler weather at Half Moon Bay and to meet the kids for our annual camping trip. Hooked up the Streets and Trips and sailing along (ok, we're only going 55-we're in California after all). Getting awfully close to the Bay I thought. Where oh where is 101? My phone GPS would lead us to 1 and down through San Francisco and Pacificia. From a previous road trip, I thought there was an area that I wouldn't feel good about navigating 'Bama through because of a rock wall that jutted into the road (maybe we need...

Jan 24, 2011 - Half Moon Bay

HALF MOON BAY The purpose of our trip to southern California in January/February was twofold. One, was to get away from the cold winter weather of the east coast and two, was to complete Harman’s goal of “touching the waters of the four corners of the continental United States”. The final “corner” was the southwesternmost point in the U.S. located south of San Diego. We started our trip just outside San Francisco. Since we had visited San Francisco twice previously and one time being just a year ago, we decided to stay at the beautiful Ritz...

Oct 13, 2010 - Half Moon Bay

Kathryn and Carlo returned to Half Moon Bay after their honeymoon in Banff and Lake Louise in Canada. They spent a few days before returning to Dubai. We visited Cameron's English Pub for dinner and a few games of darts. The pumpkin festival was being held and we took photos with the 1300+ lb. winner. We spent the last evening walking along the bluffs above the ocean at sunset. Carlo gave Dianne an Italian cooking lesson. The next morning we watched the happy couple with their luggage wondering how many taxis it would take to get them home...

Sep 12, 2010 - San Francisco Peninsula

Arrived in a foggy but stunning piece of coastline. The Crab Landing for dinner was great with raw tuna in a martini glass and the fond memories of Chilean sea bass brought back to life on a plate! Breakfast at Ketch Joanne is a must for a tourist as that's where you will find all the locals. Off to explore the craggy coastline on cool and brisk morning. Next stop Ritz Carlton (sadly not to stay or play) but the views are said to be stunning!

Aug 28, 2010 - Saturday, Day 11

Saturday morning - first stop is breakfast at Crepes & Coffee. Lesson for the weekend, anything done with 7 people + a baby results in a multiplying factor of 10 for length of time in doing anything. Breakfast was as good as I remembered. Next was a drive to the North Face outlet - great bargains were found by all. The day continued with a drive down Route 1 to Moss Beach-about 40 miles South of San Francisco...beautiful views - but made difficult by having to fit 7 adults, a baby and car seat and 2 dogs into two cars!! Lots of photo...
