Last week the weather was particularly warm in California so we decided to hit up the beach. We’ve been to all of the popular beaches in our area, so we ventured out to try a new and lesser known one. We visited Team Beach near Santa Cruz, California and although we hadn’t heard of it before it seemed to be very popular among the locals. The beach was so packed that it was hard for me to get a photo that didn’t include other people in it. This says a lot because as a professional photographer, I feel like this is a skill I have down to a science from photographing my clients in public areas. Anyway, it was a particularly warm holiday in Spring so I’m sure the beach isn’t always crowded.
There is a small stream that comes through the rock-faced cliffside, then finds it’s way to the ocean. The boys had a blast playing in it and created their own little rock dam from river rocks and sand. It didn’t hold back any water, but they still had fun creating it. In true Northern California fashion, there are also a lot of natural rock formations, one of which has a tunnel that leads to Panther Beach, just to the south. Most of the people who showed up seemed to visit this beach and I’ve heard that it is the better looking one of the two.
All in all we had a pretty good day at the beach. The weather was perfect and despite the crowds, we were able to keep to ourselves and enjoy the coastline.
