Montara Beach at Sunset

The fog broke up just in time for a beautiful sunset over the Pacific Ocean, at Montara Beach, California.

Montara Beach is a beautiful state beach near Pacifica, California. We chose this beach as the location for a friend’s birthday picnic. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t very picnic friendly. It was foggy and cold all day… and very windy! This wasn’t all that unexpected, since such conditions are pretty common along Central/Northern California’s Pacific coast. The location was chosen more in hopes of ending the picnic with a beautiful sunset. The fog seemed really socked-in all day, so we were pretty sure that those hopes were dashed, too. But right as the day was ending, the fog broke up just enough to give us a stellar sunset, with the perfect amount of clouds (which is pretty rare for California).
