Holiday weekend

I have heard a lot of talk on the local news about the rising popularity of the staycation (a vacation when you stay at home). We have done this often in the past - but last weekend was not the best time to stay in the bay area:

This is the view down the main street - normally you can see the hills, and even the end of the road - what you can see is the smoke from the fire in the Santa Cruz mountains.

We spent the holiday weekend over the mountains here...

Capitola of course. We had a great few days by the sea.

As well as beachcombing (too cold to swim) we also took our bikes so Finlay got a lot of practise on his new mountain bike.
