Enjoy a fantastic fall day playing at the beach and watching the surfers with Arnold Vinette. With the advent of global warming and the melting of the Artic ice cap, Antarctic ice cap, and Greenland Glacier, these just may be unique historic images of Santa Cruz Beaches as worldwide ocean levels begin to rise up to 8 meters (23 feet) or more. By 2036 - 2050 the coastline of Santa Cruz could look very different from the one we see today as the ocean levels rise! This special photo album show cases the great fun to be had on an early fall weekend at Seacliff Beach located at State Park in Aptos and at Seal Rock located in Santa Cruz. Both located minutes away from each other in Northern California on the coast of the Pacific Ocean one hour south of San Francisco. Seacliff Beach features a 3km long beach about 30 meters wide. The fine sand is just perfect for building sand castles, digging large holes in, and covering one self with! Seacliff also features a very long wooden fishing pier. At the end of this pier lies a sunken concrete World War II transport ship. This sunken World War II concrete transport ship once an entertainment hall is now home to hundreds of pelican families that are safely separated from their human observers by a steel fence. After spending a fun afternoon at Seacliff Beach, take a break and head north to Seal Rock in Santa Cruz. Seal rock is located just west of the Santa Cruz Pier. Here you can see some wonderful talented surfers catching the waves. Surfing is very popular at Seal Rock and along this area of the Pacific Coast. Make sure to bring your surfboard, camera, and bike or rent nearby! From the Santa Cruz Pier and passing by Seal Rock there is a wonderful bike path that follows the scenic Pacific Ocean coastline to Natural Bridges Beach. Once you have been here, you will want to visit again and again! Can you smell that tantalizing salty sea air?
