Eli and I drove from Capitola to Santa Cruz to capture the sunset.
The sun began to set at Natural Bridges State Beach.

Looking south toward Santa Cruz from Natural Bridges showing the old light house- now the historical Santa Cruz Surfers Meuseum.
It stayed overcast most of the time.
We spent the afternoon hiking and exploring Point Lobos State Park.
A seal resting on mossy rocks.
The kelp was growing thick just about everywhere.
There was something beautiful to see at every turn during our hike.
Sea Lion colony resting on rocks.
Looking south towards Big Sur- the sun is trying to peek through the ever present fog...
The rock formations at Point Lobos were outstanding.
Point Lobos Sea Lions spending a lazy afternoon after their morning swim.
Natural bacteria growing on native conifers, Point Lobos was amazing.
A Heron perched on a floating log bobbing to the tide.
The color of the rock formations was so beautiful.
Ben told me that the white coloration was seagull droppings... I tend to believe him.
The surging ocean around Point Lobos never stops.
I was struck by the blue water and the size of the waves.
Moss growning on the side of a cliff, near Santa Cruz.
