Santa Cruz, CA: Today, I wanted to make it into the water, so I drove to Bonny Doon Beach. The parking lot there was full. It was one of the few open roadside parking lots I saw. The rest of the parking lots were closed and people were parking along the side of the road. At the beaches, it almost felt like pre-pandemic. While there were a few people wearing face masks, most did not. People did try to maintain six foot distance between one another for the most part. There didn’t seem to be any concern when passing each other on the trails.
I hear from my Mom that masks are going to be mandatory in her county in Texas tomorrow – two days after masks were required here.
