Gone to the Beach: Images from Santa Cruz
A friend at the local restaurant - the Pixie Deli.
Lesson time - brrrrrr......
Warming my toes at the beach fire on our last night.
The beach looked like this every morning - misty. It was jacket in the morning weather.
Pure Santa Cruz.
This is pretty much how Lee felt after a couple of days at the beach near Santa Cruz, CA. One of the chilled out sea lions at the pier.
This is how it looked every afternoon. The sun appeared. I didn't know the Pacific in Northern California could be turquoise blue!
The Watson children digging a hole to China in the sand - off our deck.
I've been in California for the last week - with Lee - visiting our dear friends, Joe and Carrie Watson and their wonderful children, sisters and nieces on the beach outside Santa Cruz. It was a family affair and couldn't have been nicer. From the margaritas that land in your hand without so much as asking to Joe's Exceptional Grilled Rack of Lamb and Carrie's Divine Caprese sandwiches, sister Donna's Homemade Blackberry Ice Cream and sister Terry's Garlic and Carmelized Onion-Infused Mashed Potatoes, we ate and drank like royalty. Cheers to our hosts!
