I just pulled off onto Davenport Road which hugs the coast and has grass lined paths down to the water. The gravel road is filled with sun-faded cars, surf boards hanging off the back, and the air smells salty. It’s almost impossible to take a photo without a surfer. Surfing is the thing to do on a beautiful Saturday morning (that and shoot photos) The fog has started to lift and I’m off looking for another interesting place to stop…;)
In Santa Cruz, California there is a fabulous walk you should absolutely try! Located along West Cliff Drive, this walk allows you to stroll with an ocean front view for miles. It’s easy to find, just park by the Natural Bridges State Park and you’ll see the path that curves along next to the cliffs. (Directions below) If you walk from Natural Bridges to the municipal wharf it’s about an 8 mile round-trip. Before you go, stop at your favorite coffee shop and get what my sister calls a “road joe”. It’s a perfect walk if you’re alone (very safe) or with friends. Along the way you’ll see the lighthouse, surfer memorial and municipal wharf (lined with shops and restaurants). More photos to follow but for now this photo shows me at the start. On your mark…get set!
