trip to the beach

Yesterday my sister and I went to the beach for a couple hours. It was beautiful on the coast, it was foggy and cold inland and warm and sunny there.

There is just something about the beach that calms me and makes me contemplate bigger things than my problems. Santa Cruz and the coast is just such a departure from the hectic streets of Silicone Valley. It always amazes me how calm and laid back everything is.

We walked on the beach, and explored a little. We were out on some rocks and faster that you can say lickety split I slipped on some slimy rocks and fell hard on my butt. Man it hurt. I braced myself with my left arm and my shoulder is sore now. I think its had sort of a ripple effect on the rest of my body, all of me is sore today.

I found a bone that had a really cool shape, I have no idea what kind of animal it came from but we decided it was a pelvic bone. We found a really cool cave that we need to go back end explore later when the tide is out. We watched some guys catching little fish and just hung out.

Afterwards we went to Marianne's in Santa cruz and got yummy ice cream.
