A lake in Watsonville was not exactly on my list of places-to-see in California. But one day we decided to go strawberry picking and landed up in a farm in Watsonville. Once we were done with the farm activity, we had more time on us, so we thought we’d see a little more of Watsonville. Since it was Cinco de Mayo*, we had to skip the drive through downtown Watsonville and go to Pinto Lake instead.
We went, we saw and we really liked the place. The lake was serene and beautiful, there were a few boats on the water and lot of birdlife, both in the water and outside. There were picnic tables, grills, swings and slides. Most of all, Pinto Lake seemed like quite a peaceful place.
Here are some pictures from Pinto Lake. You might want to have a BBQ there this summer.
