Mavericks 2013

Half Moon Bay

2013-01-20 We haven’t been to Mavericks since 2010.

Airport St

This year we knew we would run into trouble. So we parked at Moss Beach and decided to hike in.

There was so much police presence that we missed the turn for the trail. What a shame too, for the big waves were in the morning with the high tide.

Last time we came there were 50 foot waves that crushed some bystanders. Literally bone crushing waves.

I know the law was trying to protect us, but this is not the Mavericks of 2010.

So with being turned away at every point by the law to view this event live, we decided to grab a bite to eat.

Their New England Claim Chowder is out of this world!

The law thought it would save us by (get this) letting us purchase tickets to go into this fenced off area. To do what?

That would be to watch Mavericks from the big screen. Really?

I wandered around a bit taking pictures of the flowers, but that is not why I came.

Dude, go out there and tell me what is going on.

Human they won’t even let us go out there. See how bad it is people!

All the action is going on right passed that breaker, that we USE to be able to watch Mavericks from, LIVE and in person.

The police is at every turn, but there are more of us than there are of them.

YES, we made it to the Bluffs!

We could all hang out for a little bit until the law would ride by telling us to “move on”.

Hello, it’s a calm sea. There is no way the waves are going to get us up here. Idiots.

Now I wouldn’t get too close to the edge mind you, but this is a hiking area. People come here all the time and they seem to live.

Again we missed the big morning waves, due to missing the trail head.

But we still had fun walking around, and had the best chowder ever.

Now if you have time hop onto HWY 92

and you can’t miss it.

These dinosaurs are really cool to check out.

This is something both kids and adults will like.

And just a little bit further up the street is

Sun Studios
12001 San Mateo Rd Half Moon Bay, CA 94019

This is where all the great metal sculptures come from.

I love all this artists metal work.

It’s a wonderful garden shop to poke around in.

But the metal work is outstanding!
