Half Moon Bay

Andrew and I went on an overnight trip to Half Moon Bay for our 6 month anniversary. We thought it would be fun to get out of the city for a night and breathe fresh air :) 

I got off work on Saturday afternoon so Andrew picked me up and we started our drive south, only 25 miles! We were able to see the sunset from the harbor and have dinner at a great restaurant called Flavor.

We saw a couple pelicans while we walked the docks looking at boats.

Andrew called these campers "Crabbing Bums." They had the whole setup going! 

 Sunday morning we grabbed coffee at a coffee shop next to our hotel then drove down the road a little ways so we could walk on the coastal trail. 

The trail took us through the stunning Ritz-Carlton and it's golf course.

We had brunch, which was fantastic, at Miramar Beach Restaurant, then went back to the coastal trail to explore more.

We walked through a tree tunnel and along the cliff.

The view was incredible! 

In the afternoon we walked through downtown which was a couple miles from the harbor and our hotel. We enjoyed going into the little shops but I'm glad we went in January because during the summer the little town would be crowded with tourists. It's a neat little town and the northern area has more of an "Oregon-Coastal-Town-Feel" that we really enjoyed! We defiantly want to go back :)

In the evening we had dinner at an Italian restaurant and walked the out on the pier in Pillar Point Harbor. We saw the pelican again along with another beautiful sunset! 

It was so great to spend a night away and relax! We spent most of the day walking and enjoying the sunshine. I can't believe that it has already been six months since we got married. Time has flown by! 


  1. We enjoyed you little trip down the coast. The pictures are beautiful, not only the landscape but the ones of both of you also. What a great weekend for your six month anniversary.
    Love, Gdma & Gdpa King
