We’re really only about 12 miles from the ocean, but it takes 30-45 minutes to get to the beach, which isn’t bad. So on Saturday we packed up the girls for a half-day adventure.

We drove up the coast for a little while to see where we wanted to stop. We passed state beaches and found a spot where you can just walk down to the beach. We got our stuff and headed down.

We got to the sand, and Saige hated it. She wanted Chad to carry her. We got a sheet put down, and then slowly she got used to it. Brynley was pretty much okay with it from the start, but that didn’t surprise us since she likes the dirt so much.

It was so beautiful. A bright blue sky, the sound of the ocean, and a nice breeze.half moon bay, california, beach, family adventure

The water was cold though and the girls didn’t like it much.half moon bay, california, beach, family adventure half moon bay, california, beach, family adventure

After an hour or two, the winds picked up and the fog rolled in. So we packed up and went to find some lunch. We’d heard rave reviews about Barbara’s Fish Trap so we got some fish ‘n chips and sat outside to enjoy them. half moon bay, california, beach, family adventure, fish n chips

By the time we finished eating, the fog was thick and the fog horns were regularly sounding. It was beautiful in its own way.half moon bay, california, beach, family adventure, fog, harbor It was such a fun way to spend the morning, and without being too overwhelming or a big deal. We’ll definitely be back soon!
