Half Moon Bay State Beach

 

The weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area has been bad to say the least the last ten days. We had extreme heat for us (over 100 degrees for several days) which brought on thunderstorms (something I have rarely seen here and I have been here basically all of my life) and lightning. This sparked a bunch of wildfires and now the air quality here is really bad and not expected to improve anytime soon. It isn't really safe to go outside.

Anyway, I am going to back to a happier place (as I try to keep this blog happy), last month I vistied Half Moon Bay State Beach and the air was crisp and clean, it wasn't too hot and the views were beautiful:








There is something I love about being on a beach just staring out on the Pacific Ocean.

  1. There is something about the waves that is just mesmorising. News of your wildfires is terrifying. Keep safe.

  3. I miss the ocean Patrick! I do hope the bushfires get under control soon, it is a dreadful situation our small town knows only too well after the devastating fires here in January this year. #mlstl
