Last Thursday I picked Jack up from work and we headed out to Pescadero to stay overnight at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel.
We loved it!
She-poopsalot had rip roaring time. She loves the beach that’s for sure.
This beach had so many fascinating things to dawdle over. Amazing rock formations.
A found a perfectly clear jelly fish the size of a quarter hanging out all on its lonesome.
Tidal pools galore.
Colonies of sea anemones everywhere.
Sans water they close up like this.
But once the water is in they open up to display an incredible neon teal.
Mussels. We have a few friends that live on the coast who periodically come out and harvest a bucketful for a seafood dinner. (Fishing license required.)
I found this little starfish on his back, belly exposed. It was still alive so I felt compelled to return him to his brethren on a nearby rock, belly side down. Good luck little dude.
This cozy hot tub is reservation only, super clean, completely private and perched right on the cliff. While the weather is cool and fresh, the steaming hot tub feels delicious. What a way to watch the sunset.
We highly recommend this hostel. It feels like a small inn. Perched right on the cliff the location is ideal. It’s very family-friendly and while the hostel can accommodate quite a crowd the complex is broken up into bungalows so that it’s still quiet and intimate.
We grilled outside for dinner, built a bonfire and invited some new found friends including hostel host and radical surfer-dude Mike, to join us. We kicked back and chatted well into the night about local surfing, people’s kids, world traveling, politics, you name it. We had plenty of private time but when we chose to, we met some really nice and very interesting people.
We loved it. A nice little 24 hours away.
