For the last two Monochrome Madness Challenges I have submitted photos from our hike on Veterans Day in Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve on the San Mateo coast just south of Half Moon Bay. Here are some more photos from that hike, all in color.

I submitted a black and white photo of the trail for Monochrome Madness 3-31. Here is the color version:
And, in case you missed it, here is the color version of the photo I submitted for Monochrome Madness 3-32:
After about three miles we came upon a trail junction. The Purisima Creek trail continued up the hill to the right and the Britton trail winded down on the left. My daughter knew there was a bench around a bend just a few minutes away and so there was. Unfortunately, it was already occupied but the couple told us that they would be through in about ten minutes. So we walked on for five more minutes and then turned around and walked back to the bench and had our picnic lunch.
After our hike we stopped at the Baskin & Robbins in Half Moon Bay for an ice cream treat. I chose the first class camouflage flavor in honor of Veterans Day.
After our ice cream treat we headed back across the bay. Too bad Highway 92 is such a bottleneck. We crawled all the way home!
My two daughters and four grandkids took good care of me while my wife was away visiting relatives in Guam. She’s back now, just in time for our annual Thanksgiving celebration.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
