I can’t remember how I first heard of Capitola but when, for a very brief period of time, I lived in Mountain View, California, I visited it for a day and was charmed. It is a very small little town sitting on a very small bay and I bought one of my favorite posters there which still hangs, framed, on my bedroom wall in Paris. So, now that we are here in the area for six weeks, Maurice and I drove up to look at it again.
Here is a view of colorful cottages across the little bay. Wouldn’t it be fun to stay in one of them?
We stopped for a drink here. It was a beautiful day and it was one of those times when it was a pleasure to just sit and look at nothing in particular.
This lady had a really nice garden and a very pink cottage.
Each cottage had some sort of nautical decoration on it.
