I Left My Heart in Capitola

I’ve been blessed to be able to spend time each summer since I was about 8 years old in a little town called Capitola. Capitola is part of Santa Cruz county and has so much to offer anyone who visits. As soon as I drive into town, I feel a wave of nostalgia wash over me. Looking around, I remember all the good times spent here with family and friends. One of my favorite things about Capitola is it’s natural beauty. You can walk to the beach in minutes, drive the scenic coast or hike the red woods. Here are a few snapshots of one of my favorite places in the world.

Waves breaking at the famous surf spot, Pleasure Point.

The Hook, surf spot. This stump reminds me of the book, “The Giving Tree”.

My favorite thrift store in the village where I scored some Levi’s to cut into shorts, a baseball tee and a Star Wars Lego shirt for my son.
