What jetty?  The waves roared in and were not deterred by the jetty as they splas...

Pillar Point is a perfect place to go kayaking.   There's quiet waters in the harbor for those just getting started and open ocean for those with more experience who are looking for a challenge.   We've even seen many kayaks filled with fishing gear as they set out around the jetty.

Here's our friend, Gail, who just got back from her first ever kayak outing.

THE JOHNSTON HOUSE


James Johnston's white salt box house sits on a hill facing the ocean just south of Half Moon Bay on Highway 1.  In 1853, Johnston owned all the land from his home to the ocean.   He built the house for his wife, Petra.  It was the first all wood house to be built in the area.  (slide show is below and an interview with a docent )
