After having breakfast in the room and packing up, Sharon and I headed to Half Moon Bay State Park. We hiked a couple of miles south down the beach from the Venice Beach entrance and back. Although some of the vegetation on the sand dunes was interesting, this was not a particularly scenic hike. Unlike Monday when the weather was spectacular, Tuesday was overcast.
We stopped at one of the big pumpkin patches on Highway 92 so Sharon could shop for Halloween decorations, did a conference call from the car to pick our Kings tickets for this season, and then stopped in downtown San Mateo for lunch at a Mexican/Salvadoran Restaurant called La Michoacana. We wandered across the valley and got back to Elk Grove in the early afternoon.
