President Biden coming to my town today, Santa Cruz County, CA

I live in Rio Del Mar at Seacliff State Beach, one of the hardest-hit areas of the Central Coast.
The president is coming later today, I've seen his entourage's aircraft flying along the coast and he'll be at my location this afternoon after stops in Watsonville and Capitola.

Are there any DUers in Santa Cruz or Monterey Counties?

1. Our kids live in Santa Cruz, near Capitola.

They said they've seen lots of helicopters and action getting ready for his visit.

2. Yes, two V-22 Ospreys flew over one day, and a UH-60 on another.

Airforce One, when the President boards, will be a UH-60.

I hope to catch him flying over, I do not plan to go out to the event, however.

Maybe I will, and will post any updates worth posting.

Here's his aircraft at Watsonville's airport nearby.

3. No but I've been there many times including Seacliff and Aptos beaches

 

And partied at Margaritaville in Capitola 5 or 6 times.

I *WISH* I was there.

Not last week so much, but in general

4. Lived in Santa Cruz for 30 years until I moved to BC

My daughter still lives in Prunedale.

Isnít this the first presidential visit to Santa Cruz county since GHW Bush came in 89 after the Loma Prieta Quake?

7. Correct, Bush came after the earthquake.

I live exactly 5.0 miles from the epicenter but didn't back in 1989.

I was on an overpass with a camera and tripod but asked to leave, but watched on news and saw the motorcade and then his aircraft fly by along the beaches on they way out of town.
