California Beaches vs. Jersey Beaches

If I say I’m going to the shore in Jersey, it means hot sun, bikinis, boardwalk, ice-cold drinks, and suntan lotion; however, in the San Francisco Bay area if you are going to the beach you better pack a sweat shirt, wet suit, warm drinks, and blankets.  Also when most people think of beaches in Jersey this is what they think…I promise you this is not the norm.  Yes there are people like this, but no the majority does not look or act this way.  I feel the need to clarify this common misconception!

This past weekend we decided to head over to the beach and get some salty ocean smells.  We ate at Sutro’s at the Cliff House, a great restaurant  on the cliffs of the San Francisco Pacific coast line.  After eating we journeyed down the cliffs and explored the caves and got a closer look at the Pacific Ocean.  There were a lot of interesting and beautiful views from this location that epitomize Northern California beaches.  I made this collage with InstaCollage for iPhone integrating all the pictures I took into one stamp/postcard.

On a side note, these pictures totally remind me of the movie, Goonies.  Especially the one with the three stones that the kids line up with the skull decoder.
