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.

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.
