Christmas Eve at the Boardwalk

A rare scene: No people.

A rare scene: No people.

We decided to go to Santa Cruz just one more time before we leave this coast. We had forgotten how windy the road was from 101 over the coast mountain range to the ocean. At least it was not so long that I got carsick. In any case, Santa Cruz seemed pretty low key for the day before Christmas.

The weather was perfect. People were out in their summer clothes, but something wasn’t right. I noticed that the air was still dirty even on the coast, and at this particular beach it smelled strongly of diesel. We didn’t stay long, but still it was nice to feel the sun on what should have been an overcast, gloomy day.
