100 Happy Days: Paws

Hungry paws left prints behind at our campsite. Suzanne and I thought our food would be safe on the picnic table.

We were wrong.

But first, I loved waking up under the tent’s “skylight.”

A 9-year-old sleeping bag kept us warm overnight.

It looks like raccoons visited us overnight.

100 Happy Days: Camping

I missed camping. I was so happy that Suzanne invited me to tag along on her camping adventure in Half Moon Bay.

It was lovely to find a campground that’s only 30 minutes away from my house.

I also loved pitching our tent next to the beach.

Travel Theme: Close-up

Army of one.
This is on Gray Whale Beach near Half Moon Bay.

We found this little guy all buy himself. We played with him.
Then we went home.

Our beach walk with Daisy at Montara State Beach. Also enjoyed a lovely picnic with sandwiches from Gherkin’s Sandwich Shop.

Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.

By the Sea

It feels like Fall. Warmer weather tempts us by the beach. The sun kisses my puppy’s nose.

We did lunch at Moss Beach Distillery in Half Moon Bay. We avoided the pumpkin-crazed mobs by going on a weekday. I understand Highway 92 is a traffic nightmare around this time of year.
