Half Moon Bay State Beach is a 4-mile stretch of protected beaches in the state park system of California, USA, on Half Moon Bay. From north to south it comprises Roosevelt, Dunes, Venice, and Francis Beaches. The 181-acre park was established in 1956. On the Saturday morning of June 16, 2012 my girlfriend and I set out from Stockton, CA down to Half Moon Bay, CA in my (terrible for the environment) Chevy Blazer. After about 2 hours of driving we arrived to an astounding view. The cool ocean breeze flowed past us. And honestly, there were a ton of people. I observed a few birds, grasses, plants and wildflowers and beautiful rock formations.
