I Need To Keep A Sweatshirt In My Beach Bag

July 18, 2009

Bill and I drove down to Santa Cruz today for some quality beach time. I’ve been craving some time by the water. I could go by myself during the week, but this week did get kinda busy. And then today I contemplated staying home today and doing miscellaneous chores, but in the end we packed our bags for the beach.

We opted for the undeveloped beach a little further south of downtown Santa Cruz. It was uncrowded and pretty quiet. Very peaceful. And windy. And a wee bit chilly. Our first clue should have been all the people we saw in hoodies. It was partly cloudy and very pleasant and comfortable when the sun was out, and a little cooler when it wasn’t. We enjoyed two hours outside, listening to the waves and reading our books. It was very beautiful though, especially the little stream I photographed.

It was quite relaxing and next time will be better…because I will bring a sweatshirt!
