Letterboxing in Pacifica

On my final day of freedom; the last where Kiersta was in school and I wasn't, as well as no baby, I joined my mom and her friend Sharon for a day of letterboxing in Pacifica.  I had heard that the weather was supposed to be cool and overcast, so I put on long pants and a long-sleeved shirt and grabbed a jacket to bring along.  However, the day ended up being just lovely with lots of sunshine, so much so that I came home with a sunburn.  Here are some highlight pictures of our day out on the coast of California.

Luckily I knew just where to go if a tsunami were to strike.

Here's my mom waiting patiently while we finish stamping in.  
It wasn't hard to wait though with a view like this though.

One of the many coastal flowers we saw.

We made a stop at the Point Montara Lighthouse, which I had never been to before despite frequenting the local beaches in high school and having one of my best friends live in Montara at one point in her life.  It was a nice area with great views but not quite as spectacular as the lighthouse at Pigeon Point, a bit further south.  As you can see, there is no fog anywhere and I felt overdressed.

Our final stop of the day was at a small scrapbooking store in El Granada that was going out of business.  They also were hosting a letterbox, so that seemed like a great reason to stop in and do some shopping.  Interestingly enough, a letterboxing friend of mine, WyndRyders and her two kids, had been in the very same store just a few hours before us. Great minds think alike apparently! :)

Here I am, quite pregnant, wondering which way to go next.
Home, coffee, and a bathroom were all I really wanted.


  1. Those tsunami signs crack me up, for all the wrong reasons.

  2. All, such valid things to want. How *did* you decided. I really wish we'd run into you at the scrapbook store. That would have been perfect!
