April Beach Day

We traveled to Half Moon Bay for our April Beach Day. This was the first time we'd been to this beautiful place. It's only about 2 hours away and we'll definitely be going back. As our hot Central Valley Summer approaches, the deep marine layer is too inviting not to visit again soon. Sierra went with us this time... and even ventured out on the sand to touch the very cold ocean water. (What a difference from the warm water in Maui last month.)

We had a delicious lunch at Sam's Chowder House (the clam chowder was yummy) and enjoyed the beautiful views.

On our way home, we stopped in at an Orchid nursery and brought home a few of these beauties.
