Whoopie ! It's Tuesday -- welcome to Show Your World !
This is a beach with the delightful name of Bean Hollow, on the San Mateo coastline, about half-way between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. After an early start, this is where I ended up on Saturday morning. The surf was heavy, and the foamy waves were swooping way up and over the beach. The weather was pleasant -- I had a great time...
I call this "my world" because I have travelled up and down Highway 1 about a billion times over the past 61 years. My family lived in Pacific Grove (near Monterey), and when I was a kid we frequently travelled up Highway 1 to see Grandma in Marin County, near where I live these days.
Personally, I think the San Mateo coastline is even prettier than Big Sur (to the south of Monterey). There is more access to beaches, and the scenery is absolutely spectacular. There are tiny roads to explore the various redwood studded canyons, with creeks that gush in winter. Yes folks, it's my world and I don't think I would exchange it for any place else.
