Half Moon Bay

 The first thing we saw as we came ashore was this beautifully restored T Bird. The trip down from San Francisco was perfect. Offshore breeze and minimal wave action
 View of the Pillar Point Harbor. The seas were flat and appears to be a good anchorage in the prevailing winds. Bottom was sand and holding very good.
 Lots of historical reading abounds in the harbor walk.
 Pillar Point and home of Mavericks. The Mavericks is a world famous surf break. The competition is held once a year and is open by invitation only. Competition this year is from January 1 until Marc h 31st. The twenty four Titans of Mavericks have 48 hours to be there when the 20 foot waves are forecast. Not for the faint of heart. check it out.
Different view that includes the Vandenburg tracking station. Used to track satellite launches from Vandeburg base ,south of Pt. Conception.
