Day Trip to Half Moon Bay

By Carol at 9:19 am on Saturday, February 3, 2007

This week’s group hike took us to Miramar Beach, home of the Bach Dynamite and Dance Society, which was a great place for weekend jazz in the 70’s. Formerly isolated, the area has now been developed, with more homes, restaurants and galleries.

We followed a path along the sea, through Venice Beach, almost back to Half Moon Bay. After eating lunch in a grove of native cedars, we returned to Miramar for a look at the galleries.

Birds on Venice Beach

Venice Beach was closed to hikers due to contamination by this huge bird convention.

Sun Center

Back in Miramar Beach, after lunch, we find this relaxing place for alternative health care, massage and yoga. The garden is shown below.

Interesting building

Next door to the Sun Center is this unique building which houses artists’ studios. The stone over the entry gate is foreboding, but there is a reassuring angel posed on the roof – see below.
