One Ordinary Family on an Extraordinary Adventure

Scott Creek Beach | Field Trip Friday

This post is part of a series in which the kids have the opportunity to write about our travels. The short paragraphs below tell about a trip to Scott Creek Beach which is north of Santa Cruz, California just off of beautiful Highway 1.


At the beach we went and saw underwater sea caves. I know what you’re thinking, but I did not go deep sea diving to get into the caves. No, the tide was low so the caves that are usually underwater were not underwater. The bad news is that we didn’t find anything. The weird thing is that there were a whole bunch of dead minnows on the sand.


It was a beautiful day at the beach. We found adventurous caves and cool shells. We had a great time putting our feet in the water and climbing rocks. Another adventure faced us the next morning while we were looking at shells, and one crawled off the table! ‘ Hermy’ didn’t make it home with us, but it was still an adventure.


At the beach I found seashells and played in the waves. My dad found a place on the other side of the beach and told us to come there. Although it was a long walk, we had a big surprise at the end. There were caves. They were not long, but they were cool. There were dead minnows on the shore and birds on the water fishing. It was the best beach ever besides Half Moon Bay.

P.S. my sister on accident brought back a hermit crab inside one of her shells.


Five weeks ago we went to Scott Creek Beach to have fun and look at cool stuff.  We walked and found a sea cave. My family and I found cool sea shells.


My family and I went to the beach. We went in the van. We went to have fun. We went inside a cave.


At the beach, I collected shells. I ran in waves. It was so much fun. The water was cold.

We last visited Scott Creek Beach in October, 2013.
