Camping in Capitola......

Just got back from a few days in Capitola , Ca. This was our first time visting here and it was gorgeous !The beach was right across from us and we could hear the ocean waves all the time. It was so nice to sleep in the trailer by the sound of the waves. That is our tent trailer you see in the distance with our teal colored truck .

This was a very easy camping trip ! We ate all of our breakfast and Dinners at Zelda's . Great food and great prices. Thursday night was Lobster night ! 1# Lobster dinner for $11.99 and magaritas were $1.99 during happy hour.

I was amazed to see these gorgeous homes were built right on the beach ! WOW!

We walked down to seascape to visit the visitor center. These 2 eagles with them both holding onto a gopher were hanging on the ceiling above me. The story was that in the eagles excitement of catching a live gopher that the male did not see a power line and they were all killed . A person witnessed the event and they had them perserved for all to see. All I could do was stand there and stare at these magnificent birds. Such a tragic story

Can you see the ship at the end of this pier ? It is what is left of a ALL concrete ship !

Yes Concrete !

It used to look like this in the 50's ! They used to hold fancy parties and dinners on this ship back then. Now it is cracked in half and all the birds call it home


  1. Looks like fun! I miss the sound of the ocean!

  2. Great pictures of your camping trip!
    Looks and sounds like you had a wonderful time!
