|We took a day to go down to Santa Cruz and spend some time at the beach.
It was a great day for the surfers!
|Karen looks out at the waves. She loves the ocean and likes to just watch the water roll in.|
|We found this nice spot on the beach. It wasn't too busy...actually it was just us most of the time. We had a picnic snack and then took a nice nap with the ocean as our background.|
|Our view of the ocean from our spot on the beach. The clouds were rolling in, so not much sun!|
|One of the things we like to do is see the many lighthouses along the coast. We like to get pictures of them when we can.|
|The coastline in Santa Cruz, where the sun was shining. The ocean is so blue and pretty here. You can see the waves coming in.|
|A little alcove forms. Those bobbing things in the water, are ducks riding out the waves.|
|Ducks weren't the only things in the water. Surfers wait on their boards for the perfect wave to carry them back to shore.|
|The waves were pretty strong, but they were beautiful to see.
It is so relaxing to watch the waves in the ocean.
