Well, a girl can dream right?
The Full Hunger Moon is when game is scarce and predators are particularly hungry. AKA - Little Famine Moon and Bony Moon and Full Snow Moon.
So speaking of moons, do you think the moon is ever full at Half Moon Bay?
Okay, many of you may wonder where is Half Moon Bay?

Ah, the beach at
in San Mateo County
Listen to Dream a little dream with me here.
I miss trips to the beach, any beach-
and watching ducks at Lake Harriet.
What is it about open water and melting blue hues
overhead where sunshine brightens the land?
If it's crashing waves,
and honking birds with white sand between your toes, pack a lunch and bring the camera and leave the city noise behind. I won't find it around here.
Of course California and a visit to Half Moon Bay, a short, lovely scenic 25 minute drive from San Francisco, could be the answer.
Tourist stops? There are many.
- and quiet, if that's what you're looking for.
Oh, and did I mention Dinosaur sculptures?
Yes, apparently they still do roam the earth and not just
in South Dakota either.
Did someone mention Lighthouses? Of course, the one pictured below and closest to me now is

Far too wintry for now.
But, Half Moon Bay, California is the better choice if you're near,
and one idea if you're craving a night on the ocean, with access to lighthouse views, and throw in a hostel for an excellent night's sleep?
Well then why not go to
Point Montara Lighthouse, (founded in 1875 as a fog signaling station) on California's Pacific coast near Half Moon Bay.
I soon discovered why this reminded me of the east coast.
The sweet little lighthouse actually came from Cape Cod, Massachusetts and went back into service right there in Half Moon Bay in 1928 or 1929.
I'm very curious about how it got there, as speculation still abounds about exactly how or why it arrived in California. Another mystery to unravel so it seems.
"It is the absence of facts that frightens people:
the gap you open,
into which they pour their fears,
Worry not- just believe
Adventure is worthwhile-
if just for remembering them on those wintry mornings.
Where will my next adventure be? Alabama of course, and New Orleans, and Savannah, these places really wake up my soul.
Enjoy your day, thanks so much for stopping by!
