The Adventurers started a new tradition last year, driving over to Half Moon Bay to buy their Christmas tree from the Cozzolino family, who they met through the Menlo Park Farmers Market.
With rain on the way later this week, they headed coast side this morning. They walked a segment of the coastal trail that they rarely do, from the Miramar Hotel to the Half Moon Bay camp ground, a round trip of just over five miles. It was a nice change of pace on what was a cool and blustery day.
Lunch was at the cafe at the San Benito House, as always, which features some of the best sandwiches in northern California, on housemade bread. And a patio makes it dog-friendly.
The final stop was at the Cozzolino tree lot where Tony and Stephanie where in attendance, and, as usual, there was a great assortment of trees.. They broke long-standing tradition and bought a Nordmann Fir rather than a noble. They liked its shape and somewhat distinct color and needles.
To top the day off they’re having friends over for a the first crab feed of the season…
