One of my best friends came to visit me in San Francisco, so we made the most of our long overdue catch-up by escaping the city to the Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay. Its incredible views of the Northern California coast proved to be the perfect backdrop for an R&R-filled weekend, with some kayaking and horse riding thrown in for good measure.
