Ocean Side of Santa Cruz

On the way to Santa Cruz I stopped several times to watch the sea.
I met a man there who was fishing, he said, "the water is good for your soul".
How true…
The waves crashing down, rocks moving, birds flying, with the sunshine.
A bit cold but I am not complaining.
This is what Northern Calififornia is all about.


A short 24 second video of the ocean side, sounds of the sea.
There is something to be said about sitting on a rock watching nature.
I think it does feed the souls of many.
It sure did for me.

I really like the strong colours in your picture.
I love the sound of the sea - something very soothing about it!

I could't agree more about the soothing powers of water. Beautiful picture. Such lovely, clear, crips colors.

i have to say water is good for my soul. when i was divorced and living alone for 3 years and really way far down, i would take my chair to the beach and sit it in the edge of the waves and let the peace flow into my soul.
