Living in California, summer isn't complete with a trip to the beach or 10 trips!
I love the chaos and joy of the rides and junk food at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, the education of the tide pools at Natural Bridges, the laid back easiness of Capitola. And all are just a short drive from home. I adore the colors of the cool blue sky against the white waters mixing with the warmth of the sandy beige beach. It somehow soothes my soul.
