Half Moon Bay (7)

img_8928I have but two things to report on this, our seventh stay at this campground, and they both have to do with the benefits of taking daily walks. The first is that we discovered a nice bird refuge just a little to the south of the park that we had never visited before. And the second is that fresh, hot churros are easily walking distance from the campground.

img_8922The Wavecrest Open Space is a 206-acre protected wildlife refuge that is particularly important for wintering raptors. We saw many flying around but only identified one as a Northern Harrier. The other might have been a Red Shouldered Hawk, but not sure. It’s a nice easy walk with dirt trails and sweeping ocean views. All told, we walked about 2.5 miles from the campground and then headed back.

img_8905Tacqueria Tres Amigos is just one mile from the campground and will make you fresh churros with warm gooey interiors, covered in cinnamon sugar. It’s a really good thing there are no churros of this caliber walking distance from my house. Here, I’d be doing all this walking, wondering why it didn’t seem to be making an improvement on my health. It would definitely be a strong motivator though to get in my steps.

Richard did his Stage Road ride to Pescadero and back while I did a report and watched the waves. We dined again at Spice Me Thai. All good. Carry on.

Total miles: 59.6, 16.0, 1 hour 37 min. Site 22 electric hookups, oceanside. Great solar (didn’t need it), great cell service.
