Capitola-By-The-Sea

Filed under Around Santa Cruz      

We like it best in winter when things quiet down a bit. This is the Venetian Hotel in morning fog, a far cry from it’s sister hotel in Las Vegas.

The lagoon in front of the hotel is a seasonal thing. When the rains begin and Soquel Creek starts to run fastĀ  out of the mountains, it cuts a deep channel to the ocean.

In the big storms, the waves wash right through the Venetian carrying off the garbage cans, planters and anything else that’s not tied down. I was here the day the waves crashed over the wharf. Yeah, I got wet.

    I prefer it to our Venetian, because it’s unbelievably cute and by the sea. Lovely photos – now what camera is this? You have so many, I get confused.

    Mmm, Santa Cruz, lovely place.
