Yesterday was the vernal equinox, the first weekend of Santa Cruz
County moving to the red tier and spring break.
In the afternoon I went to the beach area to see what was going on.
These photos are a few of the things that caught my eye.
The rides are still off limits. It was fun to be out masked, with my camera
checking out the scene.

I got my second dose of COVID-19 vaccine yesterday. It’s been almost a year
since (March 19, 2020) Governor Newsom issued Executive Order-N33-20.
The shelter in place order. What a year!

Somebody’s Memorial

One of the things I like about wandering with a camera is happening 
upon little scenes like this. Main Beach, Santa Cruz a couple of days ago.

A cup of strong black tea, the newspaper and a good stretch. A good way to start the day!
