Reserve (watch for the signs, it's easy to miss).
(some photos from my last trip here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/
there two weeks ago, with pelicans, a black oystercatcher, a common
loon, gulls. Also nice tide pools at low tide, and when I was there,
in Half moon bay is Venice Beach, a great place for gulls.
To the south, you have options going south as far as you want to try:
ano nuevo: http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=523
pescadero state beach (and marsh): http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=522
pigeon point lighthouse (as a place for a sea watch): http://
elkhorn slough: http://www.elkhornslough.org/
you can go all the way down into santa cruz and to monterey if you
really want to. the road north dies at Montara for now. Personally,
I'd put Fitzgerald first, if the weather's clear, pigeon point, and
either pescadero or elkhorn depending on how much you want to wander.
Probably pescadero, and come back for a second visit later.
