"The tide is high but I'm holding on" - an old Blondie tune :-) Great set of images. The LV is awesome with a full moon shining, the slight blur in the water in the foreground adds dynamics to it, the water comes and goest. I also like the parking lot, it fits the Californian flow, kind of "let's go to the beach after work".
Ahh and the family, you're so lucky to live near the ocean.
Your main has a beautiful light and color. The sky's color gradient and it's wets sand reflection make the image very special. The Ci is a charming family foto, your child only have eyes for each other! I love the color of the cliffs. Santa Cruz is a fun place to visit
I do like the way you have included the other image detail. I didn't realize that option was available.
