Natural Bridges State Park is a seaside park in the town of Santa Cruz, CA. There used to be three natural arches formed carved by the waves into sandstone. The outermost arch crumbled in the early 1900s, and the inner arch fell down in 1980. Only the middle arch remains, and it is said that it will also disappear one day.

I came there one morning last week as the tide was at its highest and the waves were coming fast and furious. Only a couple of surfers were on the beach. I took the following photos from the safety of the shore.

As you can see, cormorants and pelicans had taken over the top of the natural bridges.
