East Cliff Sunsets

So just a few minutes walk from my house is East Cliff, a street that winds along the coast in Santa Cruz.  In one popular section, there is an esplanade walkway overlooking some of the best surf in the town.  At most times this winter, I've seen 30-100 surfers out and about in the water.  Today, with the winter temperatures pushing 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and it being a Saturday, the waters were full of surfers out riding the waves and people relaxing on the beaches below.  This is a picture of the sunset, with the typical California palm trees aligned with the ocean and an orange going on red sky lit up.  Truly a blessed view, something which I try to see as often as possible.

Starting the day right

Another brilliant sunrise starting off the day in Santa Cruz.  7am the sun popped over the mountains, with surfers paddling out to join the twenty already in the water.  Pretty sweet waves and an epic view as always in the Monterey Bay.  I try to see the sun rise and sun set a few times a week whenever possible.  One of the best things about living in California is that the colors, matched with the ocean combine to bring all sorts of people together to enjoy nature.  Nothing finer than taking a break from the busy life to watch the sun and meet some new people.  Here's some more pictures:
