We got a late afternoon hike in. I’m paying $$$$ for internet so I’ll be brief. This is Las Bachas (the barges) Beach on Northern coast of Santa Cruz. We saw flamingos, those red crabs whose name was escapes me, marine iguanas, turtle nesting sites (see sticks where naturalists keep track of them), all kinds of birds, the remnants of WWII barges, hence the name, which to me looked like an art installation. Lava rock, gorgeous views. More when I can!
