What do you do on Christmas Break in California?

Well, we took a trip to Half Moon Bay. The kids sipped hot chocolate and ate clam chowder from a Boudin sourdough  bread bowl as we ate some local fish, artichoke hearts and chips from Barbara's Fish Trap in the harbor. It was a sunny 65 degrees. We then hit the salt water taffy store to taste samples and use our groupons. Mom's favorite flavor was pomegranate and Cooper's was Chocolate Chip cookie. On the way home, we stopped at Gray Whale Cove, hiked, got wet and took some photos. You wanted LOTS of photos right? At the bottom is a little video treat.

Cool ray o sunshine, hahaha! Take THAT December!

What an awesome day! It was gorgeous! We've always wanted to hike down to this little secluded beach right off of devil's slide. I find it just a tad ironic that we finally got around to it just days before Christmas. I guess that's what you do in California.
Here's your treat for making it this far. Watch the entire video for a wet kid.

Super fun Christmas break :) I can tell how happy you are not to be in snow or frigid cold in December anymore ha ha. And I LOVE the HDR shots. Very cool.

We just spent the week in Carmel. Had the same experience. Utah sucks this time of the year, no snow, but freeeezing cold. I like newsy Christmas cards. I usually send one out just to let people know the Algers are still alive and kicking.
