Not very often do I get to escape the reality of parenthood and spend time just with my husband. After 11 years of marriage we were able to sneak away last month on a trip to California for his work. At the end of the tightly scheduled conference week we decided to escape the busy city of San Francisco and spend time reconnecting with each other and with nature. We had driven past Half Moon Bay on previous trips but never stopped due to time restraints and thought this would be the perfect time to make plans. It’s so close to the city, just over 20 miles from the airport and around 30 miles from Downtown. But truthfully we felt like we had escaped into our own little seaside haven.
The advantage of being used to Eastern Time from our home in Florida is that all week long we were up to watch Sunrise each morning. This was a special sunrise and it danced over the mountains and across Half Moon Bay. It was fun to see the working harbor send out many fishing boats too. We took a quick walk around the beach front and rock barrier after our balcony style breakfast, complimentary from the hotel which was so delicious. It was fun to see the harbor seal approach the shore line just about 50 feet away as though they were watching us. Every time I grabbed my camera they’d go under the water, smart little ones.
Are you ready to book a trip to Half Moon Bay, California?
Disclosure: Our trip to Half Moon Bay was complimentary thanks to Visitors Bureau of Half Moon Bay, The Beach House Hotel Sam’s Chowder House, Half Moon Bay Kayaking Co, & Half Moon Bay Brewery. The opinions expressed are 100% my own, and actually a bit of my husband’s opinion too in this post. Thank you so much for this opportunity to explore your city!
