Capitola was named one of the 20 Best Small Towns by Sunset Magazine (March 2009). The surfing images I have featured on this blog so far were all taken from Capitola.
A scene like this always reminds me of California. I've been to Santa Cruz during a sidetrip from SF several years ago and I'm impressed with the community's affection for the beach. I'm sure, residents of Capitola must be doubly proud of their beach and their town now that they've made it to the list of best small towns.
The water looks exciting, especially the splash on the lower left against the rocks. Such a pretty town - must be nice to own one of those homes.
No wonder, Maria. It looks so adorably quaint!
beautiful..I always miss home when i see body of water like this!! thanks for the visit!
A fine shot of this beach scene. This place seems to have many appealing features: beach, pier, nearby commercial services, etc. Fine shot.
Wow what a beautiful picture. Composition, visual elements, perfect!
Very enjoyable landscape, with those neat little houses, the beach, the blue water.
Very scenic view! I wonder how far this place is from San Francisco.
@Panaderos --- maybe 1 1/2 hour, but only about 5 minutes from Sta. Cruz.
A great ocean town as well!
very scenic! reminds of my visit to Sausalito a few years ago.
Very nice. The village balanced against the water, separated by the pier.
Men it looks great! Natural, quiet and lovely - all you look for in a small town.
A lovely shot!
very pretty shot :)
I love this shot! A beautiful view from above!
I always go to Santa Cruz or Monterey, but I've never made the stop at Capitola....at least not in many years. I'll have to make a point of going there now. Your shot is gorgeous!
A really beautiful town, great turbulent swell and a long jetty for fisjing...what more could one ask for?
i want to go there...
that looks like an interesting pier
Beautiful! I'd like to walk out on that pier (with my camera, of course).
