There was lots and lots of talk and even a News 5 TV truck here at Pillar Point RV Park last weekend, predicting giant King Tide waves!   Well, while over three dozen surfers waited in the water, the really BIG waves never really came.   There were waves, however and everyone got a ride.

Everybody got in the act.  Take a closer look at who is behind the stand up paddle boarder...

The last two days have been extraordinary here at the beach!  Eighteen to twenty foot waves are pounding the coastline here and surfers are flocking to the beach by the dozens.    Amazing to sit and watch the surfers do their thing.

Several of us sat up til nearly 11pm last night watching the huge waves splash over the jetty, each one more beautiful...and the action continued today, all day long.   If you've been he...
While it may have been sizzling in the near triple digits inland, here on the ocean at Pillar Point RV Park, the weather was glorious.   People were at the beach, surfing and sitting in camp chairs sipping wine.   Here are a couple of photos from the day...

Today at Pillar Point RV Park

The wind was blowing and a bit chilly, but it made for some great waves and at least two dozen surfers were out taking advantage of the action on Surfer Beach.  They were joined by windsurfers, kite surfers and some Stand Up Paddling (SUP) surfers.

The waves were beautiful to watch as they crashed into the rocks and the surfers were entertaining as they made their runs.  In California terms, it was freezing...

Pillar Point RV Park is located smack dab in the middle of the surfing world.  Turn your head to the left, and you'll see "Surfer's Beach" where there's several dozen surfers in the water at any given time.  Turn your head right, and you can see Maverick's point and the surf shop of Jeff Clark, founder of the International Maverick's surf competition.    And guess what...they teach you how to surf.    ...

Taco Bell...really?  Now I wouldn't have wasted my time posting about a fast food place if it wasn't incredible.   I'm talking about the location and design more than I am the food, although I love Taco Bell and their food is consistant from store to store.

This Taco Bell sits right on the Pacifica State Beach and the views of the ocean don't get any better.   The back patio, which features tables and benches, sits right...
