Afternoon in Aptos

              

I have been several times to Capitola, but this was my first time in Aptos. Prompted by a friend to whom this is her favorite beach, and looking for a nice simple getaway on this long Thanksgiving weekend, we set sail yesterday afternoon and drove south hitting the Seacliff State Beach park.

The beach is really beautiful: a very long stretch of nice flat sand that goes quite deep inland, surrounded by higher land around. One of the landmarks is the SS Palo Alto, the history of which can be read here.

Weather was just perfect, calm and warm, clear. Lovely lovely afternoon. And then the sunset. If you haven’t been to Aptos yet, then you should probably plan to.
