New Years at New Brighton Beach – RV Trip #49

With a few days off work for the holiday, we went to New Brighton State Beach on the Pacific Coast Highway to usher in the new year in a very relaxing and enjoyable way.

Lucy is starting to get used to these RV trips, because she loves the long walks and getting to meet all kinds of animals (including pet pigs!)

Lucy and I took a walk to the beach and were greeted with this beautiful sunrise. Since New Brighton is a south facing beach, you get to enjoy both a sunrise and a sunset each day!

New Years Eve we went on a nice drive in the surrounding area by Pigeon Point Lighthouse.

We also stopped for lunch at Aptos St. Barbecue and their killer pulled pork.

We spent the rest of the day in Capitola, walking along the pier, shopping, watching the surfers, and finishing the day with a cappuccino at Mr. Toots.

As we walked away from the Capitola beach, we noticed this great rainbow over New Brighton State Beach where we were staying…a fitting end to the day. I guess it was nature’s way of celebrating the new year. 🙂

We had a great day, but a quiet New Year’s Eve. We decided to enjoy it on New York time (9pm our time) so we could get up early and enjoy the morning the next day.

We had a good time at New Brighton, and we are already looking forward to our next trip to Flying Flags RV Resort in Buellton, CA.

    1. Haha…yes, I’m sure if it, and probably much further south. I’m not sure how the name came about, but maybe it was from somebody homesick for your New Brighton. 🙂
