The town of Davenport, eleven miles north of Santa Cruz, features coastal bluffs perfect for watching migrating whales as they pass through the Monterey Bay during the winter months. Windswept beaches are dotted with sea glass, and collecting these treasures is a favorite activity for locals and visitors. Kite boarders meet at the popular (and windy!) Waddell beach to test their skills. At Ano Nuevo State Reserve north of town, elephant seals mate and nurse their young during the wintertime.
