Half Moon Bay (aka 'the most awesome day ever!')
Norah is a very lucky girl because her Aunt Stephanie and cousin Megan flew in from Austin to hang out with her. Their visit couldn't have come at a better time, as BVZ left for a three week stint in Washington DC, and I really loved having the company.
We all got up early Saturday morning, bid a tearful farewell to BVZ and let the cousins get acquainted.
We made the quick drive over the hill to Half Moon Bay to take Norah and Megan to the Moss Beach Tide Pools.
Aunt Stephanie hung out with Norah and Megan and I hit the tide pools.
We saw one giant starfish, lots of mollusks, sea cucumbers, and other various marine life. Megan loved the shells the best.
After the tide pools, we headed over to another part of the beach where Megan could put her feet in the water and play in the sand. She was totally unfazed by the freezing cold water and would have stayed there all day if we had let her. Norah wasn't as impressed and was over the whole thing in about a half hour.
