Since I'm scared of plants, we're considering filling our side alley with rocks instead. We found some we liked today at Broadmoor Landscaping in South San Francisco, and might buy a ton or two.
After looking at rocks we walked at Devil's Slide, formerly part of Highway 1. We used to drive on it to get down the coast to Barbara's Fishtrap and Half Moon Bay. Now that the new tunnel is finished, this road is closed to cars––but open to hikers and bikers. Such a great idea.
