Gimme a pumpkin
The last week in October is completely orange.
Halloween-theme events, sportsfans and locals are in good spirits as the San Francisco Giants are 2-0 vs the Detroit Tigers in the MLB World series.
Weather has been extremely nice with a bit of rain, some crazy beautiful skies lately. I have been walking a lot and something there is almost a secret sidewalk language about decorated pumpkins. They are kind of funny.
Two years ago days before the 2010 World series begun, my friend Diana and I were walking back to work from lunch when truck with a bunch of pumpkins in the back almost ran us over, so we ended up biggest pumpkin...
So, we decorated it and called it el wilson shrine gigante or something like that. She recently an image as a remember when, made me smile :)
Half Moon Bay Pumpin Festival 2012
This world-famous festival is super fun. I was so happy my GF Muffin and I got to attend this year, the weather was fantastic. My favorite part of it was the pumpkin-flavored beer. Sounds weird but it wasn't as sweet as I had initially imagined, which is good for a sunny day in the mid-70s°F. Mid-October, yes that sun felt great for once. It is California after all..
Proud adult moments. Tasted the Harvest Moon pumpkin ale, pretty good.
Pumpkin bread +pie. Ate them both like a chammp (not the same day though..)
**The pumpkin patches (their decorations are beyond cute) between the west end of Highway 92 +Half Moon Bay are pretty awesome, we didn't stop but we are tempted to go back before October ends.
I have found the official Half Moon Bay pumpkin patch map! Here: Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Patches and Local Area Farms
