Montara Mountain Hike

Last weekend a friend and I drove 30 minutes south of the city for a day hike in Pacifica. A known surfers destination, the sweeping coastline and massive waves were breathtaking. It was a perfect mini escape from the city during a renewing girls' weekend while M was out of town.

From the San Pedro Valley Park trail head, we hiked the 3.5 mile ascending Montara Mountain trail, through a eucalyptus forest and high into the hills with gorgeous views of the Pacifica coastline. I believe we climbed an additional 1 mile to the summit, before retracing our steps downhill to the car. It was a nice workout that made the post-hike beers at Half Moon Bay Brewing Co. feel totally earned.

Decking the Halls

Time for a little holiday cheer! Though our post-Thanksgiving weekend tradition of picking out a tree and decorating the home is in its fifth year, this was a first for our SF chapter. The setting is much different than last year, but I am thankful that M and I are adaptable and create a cozy home anywhere we live.

The Christmas lights and bountiful candles inject warmth in the short, dark days. I am happy for this time of year to count blessings, share gifts, and embrace family.
