Seaside with Santa Cruz Side Trip

Over the weekend, Peter and I visited Frank and Kara up north in the San Jose and Seaside City areas. Kara suggested we visit Santa Cruz as a little side trip, and it was so nice...such wonderful Fall like weather...a bit chilly, but sunny enough that we enjoyed ourselves.
The sea lions were sunning themselves under the pier and looked so content.
I'm just loving the views from the beach...and the good sea air!
Peter and Kara trying not to laugh at the camera...the pier behind them is where we had our walk.
The next day, we explored the beach in Seaside where Frank lives. We celebrated his birthday a bit with a nice dinner the night before, and breakfast that morning that Kara cooked. She made a very yummy quiche! Above, you see us enjoying ourselves on a bench.
Here Frank is enjoying the company of Kara and Peter.
And here is the lovely view. The waves were crashing and it was a wonderfully clear day!

Chris,

Seaside is an actual city up in Northern California...close to Monterey. My husband works up there and I go up for visits.
