Comments for Our Trip to the Peninsula

StanfordOur Trip to the Peninsula: 10/22/06

Yesterday the four of us took a trip to the peninsula. Ian had to return a library book to the Stanford library. We stopped for a snack at Tresidder and then the three of us waited while Ian went to the library. I got some photographs of Sean and he in turn got some of Harriet and me.

Afterwards we headed north to Pacifica. We stopped on the way at Big 5 for something that Ian needed. I carried Harriet in her sling. A stroller wouldn't have fit in those narrow aisles and I needed to keep up with an energetic Sean.

It was four o'clock when we got to Pacifica. It was a typically hot October day so the beach (and parking lot) was full. We wouldn't be able to eat at Taco Bell by the Sea. We opted for Denny's across the highway. After dinner we walked across highway one to the beach. Harriet after nursing at dinner slept on the walk.

Sean and Ian found a sand crab while I watched the surfers. Unfortunately I left the camera in the car so I don't have any photos of the beach. We stayed until sunset and then headed home. We got home at dark.
