Half Moon Bay State Beach

Dhaval and I drive to Half Moon Bay and walk a few miles on the beach; we reach a huge flock of seagulls standing on the beach. We walk towards them and the flock parts around us; as we walk through, the flock reforms behind us. It's vaguely intimidating.

We paddle a bit. The water is cold; too cold to bear for more than one wave. There are a few foolhardy surfers in the water, wearing wetsuits; we wonder whether their exposed hands get cold or not?

It's a lovely beach, but it costs $6 to park. Both times I've visited, I've felt that I haven't really got enough value out of it. I might try bahiker's loop walk next time.
