Today, a group of women walked the Wharf to Wharf 10K from Santa Cruz to Capitola by the Sea. It was a great time! To borrow CC's analogy, it's like a parade, except the bands aren't marching and we are. Here are a few scenes. As you can see, it's quite the spectator event, as well, and everyone approaches this with a sense of humor!
After the walk, we had lunch at the Crow's Nest and then a walk along the beach. By now, the fog had lifted and the sun was brilliant on the steel blue water.
I'm very grateful for this chance to spend some time in Boulder Creek and near the ocean. Wow, what a serious nature boost, the mountains and the ocean in one trip! And I am particularly grateful for the great hostesses and guides, GC and CC!
