We decided to drop out of school and become berry farmers

But then we realized how tough that actually was ):

This was how we started out the drive:


We took the winding coastal freeway CA-1 and basically went from plunging into cool, dark temperate forests (picture #1) to veering dangerously next to wide, open beaches (picture #2). It was such an experience driving down the coast; we haven't done it in a while and I always forget how gorgeous it is until we do it again. 

And then we got hungry:


And stopped by Sam's Chowder House at Half Moon Bay for some to-go clam chowder. So yummy! Their lobster rolls also look amazing, and they have these huge windows inside the restaurant with a phenomenal view of the ocean- we decided to be a little more ghetto and have our chowder in the car. But the view we had was equally amazing ;)

And then after all of that, we finally reached the farm!! (It was ~1.5h drive from Berkeley)


It was much less impressive than I thought it would be, to be honest. They had a smallish strawberry patch (they have a much larger olallieberry patch- I have no idea what those are but their vines look cool) and I think the strawberries were a little picked over by the time we got there. But it was really fun because- did you know that strawberries grow like that? No? Me either.

It was $3/ entry and $3/ pound of strawberries, which I think is alright for a fun day out in the fields. We went to Phipps County Farm in Pescadero, CA. Everyone we met there was super nice and they have a little zoo (it looked a little sad though) that you pass through to get to the patch, so I think it's a great place to bring kids.

We stopped by Pescadero Beach on the way home:


That is all. California, why are you so beautiful??
