Sunset Magazine‘s March 2009 issue has named this quaint little seaside community one of the 20 Best (Small) Towns. Capitola-by-the Sea is 6 miles south of Santa Cruz and is a favorite day trip of ours. We love to walk around town enjoying the wharf and looking at in the sea and the surfers. Here are two pictures I took the day after Thanksgiving of 2008.
When we were there in November, there was a lot of surfers waiting for the right timing for the Maverick contest.
