It is Throwback Thursday, and a gorgeous, sunny day in San Francisco and the Peninsula. The skies are blue, and heat is on the way. The weather might be warmer today than it was 36-38 years ago when this picture was taken, but the pumpkin fields in Half Moon Bay remain a delight and a feast for the eyes.

Lisa at Half Moon Bay, circa 1977

Gorgeous weather to enjoy year-round, and wonderful outdoor places in which to play and explore -- one of the reasons we like living here!

Hi Cliff Keith  - good times! To link a name, it's like Facebook, @ sign then the name -- it usually works.

 That evening Lottie. Wow! Talk about a field of dreams! I'm sure that as a little girl you had a difficult time picking out the perfect pumpkin.

The kids love the pumpkin patch . . .  . and the adults do to.

Good luck and success.

Children certainly do enjoy the pumpkin patches and corn mazes.  You are lucky to have capture this memory.  Yes ago, I never thought about carrying a camera to the patch.

Hi Michael Thornton - that little girl is my now-grown daughter. The only stipulation we had was that the kids had to pick a pumpkin they could carry! Good times.

You're right, Lou Ludwig - pumpkin patches are a visual feast.

True, Bette Gottwald - we didn't take nearly as many pictures 'back in the day' as we do now.

Yes, Bob Crane - Half Moon Bay is the local ocean-side town known for it's pumpkins, attractive visitors from far and wide.

Good morning Lottie. "Those were the days my friend" immediately came to mind. We were out in the patch last weekend, so much fun. Great photo.

I just read your post a little closer.  You mention it was taken in Half Moon Bay. I thought those hills looked familiar.  When I was a kid, we spent many weekends in that region.  My dad was an avid deep sea fisherman.  He would fish out of nearby Princeton-by-the-Sea.

Hi Laura Allen, Lake Tahoe - Truckee Real Estate for Sale www.TahoeLauraLuxuryHomes.com  - you know how some photos stick in your mind? I knew I had this one, and the timing was just right.

Myrl Jeffcoat - HMB hasn't changed too much over the years; the drive over the hill along 92 is more or less the same -- except Lombardi Spring has been closed off. The beaches and the pumpkins remain!
