Pigeon Point Lighthouse

Well, we found something we hadn't done in the area while my parents were in town. About 20 minutes south of Half Moon Bay is a lighthouse called Pigeon Point. It really is a beautiful area. While we were there we saw about 6 whales go by. They were pretty far out there, but we could see them blowing water into the air. We saw one's body as it came up, but it was so far away you could barely tell. It was pretty amazing. Apparently in April and May the whales come real close to the lighthouse with their babies. So we are planning a trip back in a few weeks. After the lighthouse we went up the street to a little beach to let the kids play by the water.

Christian loved the sand and water. We couldn't let him play too much or he would have eaten the sand and jumped right in the water.

Hey I've been there. My Dad used to live in Montara -- which is just up Hwy 1. I love the beaches in Half Moon Bay. And the tide pool. Great photos!

I haven't been on your blog for a while! WHY? I don't know! I loved looking at all the birthday pictures, what a princess, I need a girl one day!
It's so cute to see kids discover and learn, those pictures of you and your family at the beach are so adorable.
