Sarah's birthday was a bit down the coast, in Pescadero, about an hour down the coast from San Francisco, near Half Moon Bay. We had lunch at Duarte's Tavern and then went to the beach for kite flying and relaxing on the rocky beach.
On the way back to the 101, just into the woodsy area past Half Moon Bay, we drove past a big sign on the side of the road: "The Labrynth, Haunted Hay Maze"
We took one look at each other and flipped a U-turn.
The hay labrynth was everything we hoped it would be: cheesy, silly, and kinda creepy in that deliverance kind of way. Totally awesome as no one seemed to be around when we pulled up.
The labrynth was actually part of the Arata Pumpkin Farm, which also grows corn, goats, sheep and bunnies. The sheep was totally adorable. I wanted to take him home and name him Sweater.
The actual labrynth was a maze made of stacks of hay winding in patterns. We each chose a separate doorway and entered into the curving passageways. 15 minutes in I got bored and decided to cheat by climbing on top of the walls. Maybe not the best idea. The thin, soft hay stack wall felt sway-y and sink-y beneath my weight.
After we got out of the maze, we wandered around the farm. They also had a giant King Kong statue.. with an absurdly large backside. Or, as we city folk call it, ghetto booty.
