Election season....say it out loud and feel the nausea. I took a class in college on the Lincoln-Douglas debates; an entire class. I cannot watch the gory orchestrations of professional wrestling cast upon us these evenings. The intense efforts made to marginalize, disparage, and fictionalize the plight of our nation would have forced Lincoln to have pulled the trigger on himself.
In lieu of any further histrionics I give you images of a Sunday in Santa Cruz and Capitola, California. The sea calls folks, and I must answer.
Monterey Bay is one of the most fertile living parts of the sea in America. Life along it is not bad either. On any beach any day on Monterey Bay there are loads of sea weed and kelp sharing the sun with beach goers and the salty air. The Boardwalk amusement area in the background is California's oldest continuously operated.
The sky was so deeply blue on this day.
This guy, known as hop-along posed for over a minute until he was satisfied with my image.
The playful sea lions sunning on a dock. Juliet and I are big fans of these barking creatures with huge personalities.
It was just an impeccable breezy day this day and from here we moved over to Capitola, CA and its beach to see some surfing.
