Capitola Beach

From where I live it’s easy to jump in the car and be at a fantastic beach in just over a half hour. Capitola Beach is where we headed today. I thought I packed my kit, but once I settled down at the beach I found I had no pens or pencils. All I could muster is a ballpoint pen borrowed from the reception desk of a nearby hotel. I missed the juicy line of my fountain pen, but still I’m glad I had something to draw with!

I settled down in the sand and then didn’t move until we left. This is Hari reading. See that Trader Joe’s bag by his feet? We prepared well for our lazy afternoon (well, except for that pencil case I left at home).

This view of the beach? You never really get to see it like this: Capitola is always packed, especially so if the sun is out.

One last spread before I took a nap. Beach people. So fun to draw.

Hope you got some warm weather this weekend, and if you didn’t, I hope it’s heading your way very soon!

    Suhita, these are wonderful… so different from San Miguel! I’ve been loving the sailor pen you recommended… now my favorite! Thank you!
