Picture of the Day: Sea Lions at the Santa Cruz Wharf

I’ve wanted to visit the Santa Cruz boardwalk and wharf area for a long time. Having said that, I didn’t really know that much about the area. For one thing, I learned that the Santa Cruz wharf is the longest pier on the west coast at 2745 feet. The pier is also lined with restaurants, shops, and a fish market. But what surprised me the most was that there were sea lions everywhere. It was like a massive infestation in the water and on the support structure holding up the wharf. I hope you enjoy the pictures. rk

Picture of the Day: Natural Bridges State Beach

Just north of Santa Cruz, CA is Natural Bridges State Beach which features this beautiful arch. This was one of three arches that were here, but erosion and storms have caused two to already collapse. rk
