Diva Minds Want to Know…
1. Where do you like to flirt?
At home, on vacation, and in the car with my wife.
2. Where is your favorite table for two?
Pasta Moon, Café Gibraltar, Chez Shea, Raman’s Chai, or the bar at the Ritz Carlton.
3. Where should we stay when we visit?
The Ritz Carlton, Old Thyme Inn, The Beach House, Half Moon Bay Inn, or Seal Cove Inn.
4. What qualities do you find irresistible in a woman?
Intelligence, elegance, kindness, sophistication, big beautiful eyes, and a nice smile.
5. Where can we find you on a free Sunday afternoon?
At the beach, on a walk with my wife, or playing with my grandsons.
6. What do you love most about your hometown (besides our arrival)?
The air is clear! We’re on the ocean! The views are awesome! Quick access to one of the fabled international cities, San Francisco, is just a picturesque drive away. Half Moon Bay is an authentic small town (not a town trying to synthesize “small/quaint” to recapture something lost)…and wow, the weather, the diversity of locals—terrific.
7. What should we bring when we visit? What should we leave with?
Come with casual gear, casual clothes, and a casual attitude. Leave with a smile, the need to return, and the beginnings of a strategy to make moving here possible. If you are a painter or photographer, bring your brushes or camera and leave with some nice work.
8. What do we absolutely have to see while we’re there?
Mavericks’ massive waves, Hatch Woods, the California Coastal Trail, and a collection of sunsets that are unique from each other day after day.
9. Any areas of town we should avoid?
10. Any local secrets you want to share?
Sometimes as the sun goes down, and one watches its descent right to the last point when the sun disappears below the horizon, some have seen what is described as “the green flash”. There is an explanation of why this occurs, but you have to visit and ask questions to find out what causes “the green flash”. Practically speaking, there is a public beach just below the Ritz that is a fantastic place to have a picnic. Not immediately noticeable unless you are directed to it, north of Half Moon Bay, along what is called “Devil’s Slide” on Highway 1, along the cliffs, are relics of World War II bunkers. Many artists are drawn (no pun intended) to our area to paint or shoot photos. You can occasionally see a painter before an easel developing a plein air piece in a field or on a bluff.
