San Francisco – Pacifica

Pacifica is a city in San Mateo County, California, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay.

I visited with family, including the triplets, on a brisk and cloudy day at the end of February.

Even in February there are flowers on the Pacific Coast.

The hillside was covered in brightly coloured foliage and some flowers giving the impression of a carpet.

Are asking yourself, “did she write ‘triplets’ at the start of this post?” – the answer is: yes, I did.  We were in the Bay area to visit them; they are now 13 months old.  Pop is pushing a stroller with the girl and the parents took turns pushing the boys in a tandem stroller.

 

Next posts: Back to the tour of China, then a visit to Toronto, Canada.

    Thanks for the views! 🙂 Unbelievably lovely!

  3. I loved the winding path up the slope. The tsunami sign gave me shivers though.

      A man on a ‘city bike’ climbed that hill; I wish I still had that level of fitness. And yes, the Tsunami warning is sobering and makes you realize that all of coastal California is an earthquake zone.
