Just over the hill, only twenty miles away, sits the most amazing resort, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay.
Perched atop a cliff, overlooking the ocean, it is a little slice of heaven!
Mr. A and I decided to finally see what everyone's been talking about.
If you love the ocean, then this is definitely worth a stay.
Or you could just enjoy the fire pit at the end of the day, while watching the sunset over the Pacific.
Just as the sun sets, a bagpiper plays Amazing Grace.
And yes, he's dressed in a kilt!
We had to pinch ourselves as we listened to the sweet sounds of the bagpipes and watch the sun hit the water.
Mr. A enjoying the view...
A happy, albeit cold camper!
Even though the hotel gives out blankets and there is a roaring fire, it can be cold and windy.
The hotel even has S'mores kits for roasting marshmallows.
We had a martini instead!
I love how the rooms were decorated, especially the bathroom.
French doors open to lovely Carrara marble floors.
One whole wall in the room is all beautiful built-ins.
Of course, the bed is luxurious with down duvet and soft as silk sheets.
I noticed all the details....
...like the dog bed, scarf and bowl provided for Oscar.
How cool that the The Ritz-Carlton is pet friendly!
The hotel was built in 2000 and renovated in 2010.
It's hard to believe that this is the first time we've ever seen it.
I think we might make this a yearly occasion!
