Pacifica beaches are usually buried under a heavy fog bank but I watched the weather reports and picked the hottest, sunniest day of my vacation week to go. It was perfect! I hiked the length of Linda Mar beach (above, also known as Taco Bell Beach because of the Taco Bell literally on the beach). Then found a wonderful crazy, winding path over the hills that connects Linda Mar beach to Rockaway Beach where I hiked the length of that beach too.
At the end of the day I walked around the nearby Linda mar neighborhood where I spotted so many things that would be fun to sketch, but I was getting sunburned, tired and hungry so headed off to dinner and then the drive home, much easier after rush hour was over. I took the photos below as a reminder for another visit (and possibly some studio painting).
