Beaches From Kenya to Cali

Seems like beaches are in our itinerary this summer from Kenya to California. Having come back from Mombasa after enjoying the crystal blue waters of the sultry Indian ocean, we came home to hang out at the cool beaches of sunny California.

With Swahili architecture and local cuisine, South Coast is a great place to relax, hang out and experience a totally new culture.

The quiet artsy beach town of Capitola, California

After returning from Kenya and isolating before getting tested negative, we met our Cali cousins and cousins from Austin, Texas in the artsy beach town of Capitola in Northern California.

Cool sunny days with soft waves were beckoning us on the beach.

After another week of hanging out at home and remote working, we headed to San Diego, California to the beach town of La Jolla. We were attending a wedding that had been postponed from last year. These were our very old friends of 25 years, their daughter was getting married. A colorful Indian wedding was on the agenda.
