Capitola: Of Sunset and Surfers

If we are ever anywhere near the charming town of Capitola, be assured that we would always swing by - at least consider stopping by unless of course there's time constraints. There was nothing to restrain us that beautiful winter day in January when we spent the day watching the butterflies in Pacific Grove from stopping briefly in Capitola with the sole purpose of catching some sunset by the beach.

Our legs took us to the edge of the beach where we aimed the camera to the water and the sky above. Being a Sunday meant that the beach at sunset time was no longer crowded. The day trippers probably were on the way home to get ready for the work week. I even saw more surfers calling it a day than ones jumping into the water.
