On our last day in the San Francisco area we decided to avoid the public transport for the day and instead walked south mainly along the coast . Having walked past the pier we took a different route which went around the Old Morro Rd and avoided the ridge on Morro point . Seems the whole area is called Pacifica . We went into the next beach and then climbed out on a bitumen track which zig zagged back and forth up the steep slope and had a sign saying Tsunami Evacuation Route . Coming down into the next beach there was a striking difference in the sand color , finally the beach being light colored sand rather than the dark volcanic type on the beaches near the RV park . The waves were also more normally formed , especially on Pedro point rather than the confused wash near where we were staying . There were a number of surfers at Pedro point . We spotted a Peruvian restaurant which we went to for lunch after returning from Pedro point . We shared a Paella for lunch . After lunch we took the more direct route back over the steep ridges . For the first time round here we were traversing a sand dune , before coming back on to the volcanic rock of Morro Point .
