Remembering back to the recent trip to Santa Cruz...I forgot to mention the sea lions that perch on the decks below the pier.
They seem to enjoy company and sun as much as the rest of us!
These sea creatures seem at peace here. Their cousins in the Puget Sound have alienated fishing boasts by eating the same salmon that humans wants. In the Northwest sea lions are being shot by angry frustrated fishermen. The Salmon War has only one armed side. You would not know that in Santa Cruz.

The above photo is a view of Mt. Shasta from I-5. Am planning a slower drive through parts of Northern Calif. and much of Oregon this summer.
Quiet farm land always whispers 'peace' to me. Am wondering if that is first cut hay peeking out of the barn door?

Last week-end I escaped the long rainy season that Washington State called "Winter through Spring" to visit my youngest son who was graduating from a Master's Program at UCSC. What a delightful visit. Coastal Californians really know how to PLAY! Their weather cooperates with their playful intentions.
Even bikes can relax after playing on the pier in Santa Cruz!
Sailors out playing on their boats!
Many people out playing volley ball in the sand!
My personal favorite... Kayaks waiting for me! :)
