whale watching in Pacifica

Pacifica is beautiful and has whales. It was brought to my attention that now was a good time to see whales so we had to check it out.

Pacifica in July is still foggy and gray. Looking for gray colored whales against gray skies and oceanscape is harder than I thought. We did see lots of fins and water spouts and a clear whale tail.

We went on the pier and walked all the way out. There were loads of fishermen out there!

We ended up at in a 50s style diner for lunch because my beloved Camelot was closed.

Eventually we caught on to the idea of sitting in the car and whale watching where we felt so much warmer! We could see dolphins playing in the surf.

We stayed in a little beach house near the pier.

The town is small and walkable. We always visit the public libraries, local market and cafes.

These beautiful purple blooms were everywhere. And I am obsessed with all of the cypress trees.

The golf course by the ocean preserved the wetlands.

We took a lovely wet walk up the headlands.

My favorite meal was at a British Pub called Camelot. We had snakebites (Guinness and Cider) and fish and chips. It was a meal I will definitely return for.

We loved staying so close to the Pacific ocean and hearing the waves crash all night.

I love the ocean!
