Pacifica under low clouds and with a few intrepid surfers.
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.
A wind sculpted tree at the start of our walk.
Even in February there are flowers on the Pacific Coast.
A bit of a surf, yellow and orange flowers.
The hillside was covered in brightly coloured foliage and some flowers giving the impression of a carpet.
View of Pacifica as we climbed the path heading north.
A broad and, today, not very inviting beach.
When we reached the summit of the path before heading down to see the next community – there were sobering signs.
A bike and pedestrian path down the steep slope to the next beach.
The same wind-sculpted tree at the end of our walk.
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.
