We made a last minute decision yesterday to pack up Kari and take a drive to Poplar Beach in Half Moon Bay.  The dog friendly beach had plenty of room for Kari to run free like the wind.

After playing on the beach we took a long walk on the walking trail on the cliff.

We worked up an appetite for a seafood lunch at one of our favorite places on the wharf.  Luckily besides the indoor restaurant you can order from a take out window and eat outside.  Mmmm…. calamari and an ice cold beer sitting in the sunshine on the beach.  It doesn’t get much better than that!

And after lunch another walk along the wharf to see the fishermen selling their fresh crab.

 

Yes, you can smoke and sell crab at the same time!

We overate on crab the night before so today we skipped buying any.  We did, however, make one last stop at another restaurant to buy some clam chowder to take home for dinner.

 

It was a perfect New Year’s Day.

 

It wouldn't be a day at the beach without a picture of a bird on a poop covered post!
