Drove over to half moon bay in the morning, and strolled around downtown for a bit (and got some food at safeway) before heading over to the beach. We got the last available spot in the main lot for $10, but changed our minds, got a refund, and went out in search for a more secluded beach that was less packed.

We found one called Redondo beach — one with a small parking lot atop some big cliffs. Getting down to the beach was pretty tricky (we took a shortcut down some water-made channel — but the beach was pretty nice. It was cloudy (so we weren’t baking under the sun), the temperature was perfect, the sand was soft, and there was a nice breeze. Lying on the beach was pretty dang relaxing.

I got sunburned and now I look like a tomato.

In the future we need to remember to always use sunscreen even when it’s completely overcast.

Spent the rest of the day starting from mid-afternoon back at my aunts place, chilling and doing various things. Had pizza and ribs for dinner (us young people did, at least).
