New Year’s Day and Monterey Bay

We planned a couple nights with the T@G over New Year’s at New Brighton State Beach hoping for a break in the rain. We had beautiful weather, but it was cold (for a Californian); in the low  30º’s. A great campground on a bluff overlooking the Pacific. We set up camp, investigated a bit and then went to a nice restaurant in Capitola to celebrate the new year. New year’s day we hiked down to the beach, walked along the water’s edge a bit, and sat in the sun. I had a T-shirt on! Worst thing about winter camping is it gets dark so soon. So I was BBQing in the dark and we sat around a wonderful fire while we had dinner. Pictures prove we were there………..
