Moss Beach/Grey Whale Cove

My mom came down to visit for a night on Friday. We decided to do something different and fun on Saturday before she had to go home, so we drove back down to Half Moon Bay for another beach excursion. {If you follow me on Instagram, my friend Carolina and I took the kids to this same beach last Saturday...this time I brought my real camera!}

The tide pools were great this time. We had a full moon this week so that makes the tides much stronger. We were able to see lots of little creatures. The kids just LOVE this. Heck, we all do!

This crab was a meanie! He got Jake a couple times with those claws.

And Pete evidenced by his yell face in the pic! HA!

Building rock towers. just have to.

Hello, Handsome.

One photo to prove I was there too.

After a while we got back in the car and drove back up to another beach we saw coming in. We thought it would be perfect for eating lunch {lots of sand and not very many people}. Only, we had to walk down these stairs to get there. Grandma was not very excited about that. But she made it down AND back up just fine :)

Playing tag with the waves...

It was a fun time. Oh, how we just love the beach! So glad my mom got to go with us too!
xoxo Love you Mom!!

Awesome pictures!! Love Pete's crab bite face, hilarious! And is it just the lighting in these pix or are your kids becoming redheads? I am dying to go to the beach!! I'm pretty sure there are none as spectacular as CA nearby, though.
