Bay Area’s most awesome bench

Look at that view! From this bench, you’ll see ocean, beaches and cliffs but it’s what you can’t see that’s really cool – the whales under the water! As you look out from this bench at Capitola Beach, you’re head it pointed south toward Moss Landing (where the two tall smoke stacks are), and just off that beach is where the whales hang out in Monterey Bay. There’s a giant canyon under the water just as the Moss Landing boat harbor meets the Pacific Ocean.

To find this bench, just walk sound along the sidewalk next to Capitola Beach. You’ll see Britannia Arms to your left and then just keep going until you can’t walk anymore. That’s where the Bay Area’s best bench is, or should I say, the world’s best bench!

You’ll walk south from Zelda’s on the Capitola Esplanade…

past these seals at Esplanade Park

and see Britannia Arms on your left….

once you get to the bench, you’ll see this view to your left…

and then it’s a walk north back up toward the restaurants…to see this as the sun sets…

See ya at “the bench!”
