We flew to California during July of 2001.  We had a beach house rented in Santa Cruz just a 1/2 block from the breaking waves.  We also rented a convertible Mustang and were ready for sun and surf ... however, the weather didn't comply with our itinerary.

Our beach house...very cozy
and loaded with amenities!
Capitola Beach and Wharf is reminiscent of a Spanish village. Beth and Michael made the
most of the cool days.

An episode of Bay
Watch?  No, Michael

a treacherous
bed of sea weed.
What are big sisters
for anyway!
