Commercial crab season has begun and they are seeing the same abundance of crab that the sport fishermen have been experiencing.    The boats are coming back early every day heavily loaded with BIG crab!  

At the Princeton Fish Market, just down the path, the wait is 2.5 hours to get a cooked and cleaned crab.   They can't steam them fast enough for all the people who are here to get a taste o...

One of my new favorite websites is called "Red Tricycle" (http://redtri.com/).  It's a great site for parents with children or grandparents who have grandchildren.     They offer up national and regional information about family friendly places to go, things to do with children, keeping school lunch boxes interesting, kid friendly meals and more.  I signed up for their e...


If you don't have an RV you're still in luck as there are many RV rental companies in the bay area.  You can rent everything from a Volkswagen camper to a luxury Class A bus.  Costs will range from the $50 to $100 per day for a van up to thousands of dollars a day for the top luxury buses. 

The most common RV rental is called a Class C...Class C because it has a bed over the cab. That space c...
Here's an interesting little tidbit.

What does the iconic Starkist logo "Charlie, The Tuna" have to do with Pillar Point Harbor?   The harbor was the birth place of the talking fish who always got rejected by the StarKist fishermen! "Sorry, Charlie!"

The Romeo wharf was built by Joe Romeo in 1940 for about $50,000.  Fishermen unloaded sardines and salmon there for decades. 

Joe branded cans of his seafood "Charlie Boy" with a c...

The pelicans are back but this time, they're after the bait on the harbor side of the jetty.  My friend, Yvonne and I wonder how they survived the dive bombing since the water is so shallow, but it must be those beaks full of water and fish really stop their momentum.

Look how this pelican brings in his wings and becomes a living dart as it enters the water!

The cool thing that happened today is that a fisherman on the shore, tossed out his ...

Pillar Point Harbor
Half Moon Bay, CA

Sunday, September 18, 2016

One of the real perks of staying at Pillar Point RV Park is the availability of fresh, local seafood.
Whether buying from the fish market at the harbor, right off the boat from the fisherman who caught it or catching it yourself right off the jetty, fresh fish and seasonal crab are bountiful.

Last year, Pillar Point Harbor created a new ...
When we arrived back at Pillar Point at the end of July, I was told that the bay had been full of whales for the past month!   There were so many whales at one time, in fact, people stopped along Hwy 1 to watch.  Even the news crews showed up! 

I was so disappointed thinking I missed it all.  However, about a week later, I was sitting at the table in my rig, working on my computer and suddenly I saw a whale, right next t...

Pillar Point RV Park is alive with nature...from the whales and fish in the ocean, to the birds in the sky.   While we are out enjoying ourselves, it's important to keep a special eye on our pets...especially when there are bees around.

Dogs are fascinated with the various smells and small insect movements in gardens and along hiking trails, so the chances that they will encounter a bee or wasp along the way is very possible.
