The weather has been so nice in Maine lately, today it was in the 60's (Surprising for March.) So... I am extremely excited for summer, my favorite season. Some of my favorite things:

001. iced coffee every day
 002. sitting on the roof
[this is Gabi]
  003. smoothies :)

roam if you want to, roam around the world (Half Moon Bay part 2)

So this is part two of my Half Moon Bay post. I took the photos at one of the beaches right near downtown Half Moon Bay. It was so windy I honestly thought that I might blow away. The waves were gigantic. I wish that I was wearing a bathing suit (and I was a good surfer)  because they would've been the best waves to surf. However, it was cold, and windy enough to blow the sea foam into the air and nearly hit me in the face. Since it was so windy, my aunt sat in the car while I walked onto the beach and took about 600 pictures of the waves, but I narrowed it down to these few:

(PS I made a really cool gif of the waves but I unfortunately couldn't embed it onto my post. But you can find it somewhere on my tumblr.)

she said, i will never be your queen (half moon bay part 1)

On my last day in California, I went to Half Moon Bay with my aunt. We Went to one of our favorite shops, The Nest. It is an outdoor garden- type shop full of random little things. My aunt got a patio table and I got a mermaid bookend.

Next we went to get lunch by the water, and then to a really cool surf shop, Mavericks. The Mavericks are these ridiculously huge waves that come once a year. 

Each winter, during a waiting period typically set for sometime between November and March – if and when conditions are perfect, and giant swells roll in from far across the Pacific – The Mavericks Surf Contest® is held. On just 24 hours notice, two dozen of the surfing community’s bravest and most skillful souls assemble to confront the thundering mountain of salt water many consider to be the most dangerous wave Mother Nature has ever concocted. 
So basically people from all over the place, like Hawaii, fly into Half Moon Bay on 24 hours notice for the Mavericks Surf Contest. And it's amazing. 
Plus I got a "half moon" chocolate chip cookie. And it was delicious.

I am putting this post into two parts because I have a ton of photos from the beach that won't fit into this one post. I'll probably publish it tomorrow :)
