Remarks & Notes 
Surfs up! With blue skies above, the Pacific Ocean shows a deep aura while beach-goers pay no attention to the Santa Cruz Local running past them. As many now know from two previous photos of this local, the City of Santa Cruz wants to buy the line from Union Pacific Railroad and make it a hiking/walking/biking trail. The poor economic state we're in right now has reduced runs on this line to once a month, if lucky. Tons of thanks to AB(2) for the editing help!
