I spent 3 nights in the lovely coastal town of Pescadero, California. I chose this location (50 miles south of San Francisco) because I wanted to stay in the hostel housed in the historic lighthouse keepers quarters on the edge of the Pacific. When I arrived, I was stunned by how beautiful this area is, then biked for miles each day to enjoy it.
In the 1600's, Spanish mariners charted the area and named it Whale Point; they were followed by Azorean Portuguese in the early 1820's. The Duarte family remains more than 120 years later. In 1853, a ship out of Boston, the Carrier Pigeon, ran aground, and the area was renamed Pigeon Point in her honor.
I could have easily spent a few more days in this lovely place but it was time to move on to Santa Monica, Los Angeles, and San Diego (my current location). Stay tuned for updates!
