April Seabright

After weeks of yearning and failed attempts, I finally made it to the ocean.

It's April, and the chill hasn't yet left the air. The water was freezing, but it was worth braving the waves to feel water rushing between my toes.

As nice as the beach was, it was also ridiculously windy. So windy that when my boyfriend, Ryan, and I were lying on our towels, we could feel the sand pelting our feet. 

Sort of comical, actually.

Eventually we got tired of that scene and ditched our towels in favor of taking a stroll.

Seabright has been my beach of choice for years now, but I had never taken the time to head to the northern end of the beach.

Has anyone else noticed that under most lighthouses you will usually find these huge concrete structures? They remind me of jax. You know, those little x-shaped things from the children's game? The objective is to bounce the ball and try to pick up as many jax as you can before the ball reaches the ground.

Or something like that.


  1. I love Seabright beach!! Your shots look beautiful. Do let me know if you're ever back in Santa Cruz. I can show you some sweet spots.

    You should also check out Natural Bridges the next time you're here... or drive up Highway 1! There are lots of little spots to stop and it is absolutely GORGEOUS.

  2. How nice! I'm jealous of your beach trip! (Even if it was cold as heck lol :D)

    And I never noticed that about the X-shaped things under the lighthouses, but you're totally right - they do look like Jax!!!

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving me such a nice comment. I appreciate it alot :}

  6. Glad to see you back! The pictures are beautiful. It's difficult to have a bad day at the beach; no matter what the weather!

  7. Hey girl!!Welcome back!! You have been missed :) I'm happy to hear that all is well with you and you will be blogging again.
    I think that the beach is beautiful this time of the year, in spite of the cold and the wind. But I can't wait for summer, now that I am living in a small city on the coast there is not much to do but go to the beach!
    So as I said, nice to have you back!!!
