Phoebe and I visited Rio Del Mar Beach today after I took care of some errands in the area preparing for my move to Santa Cruz. The weather was lovely: sunny and breezy. This is a favorite beach of mine because the parking is limited so the crowds are too! It gets a lot of locals from the neighborhood who take a stroll there instead of drive. I arrived just as the fog lifted so I was in luck getting a space to park. I bought a coffee for just $1 at a local cafe and mixed in some nutmeg, cinnamon, chocolate powder and sugar. Since I brought my travel mug, I didn’t have to worry about the waste of disposable cups. We left our sandals in the car and walked through the sand to play in the waves for a bit before heading back home.
