Every place that you visit has it's own 'personality', it's unique culture that defines it.
That's the fun of traveling, seeing the persona of each area.
We were up early for church - we had to leave before 8:00 a.m. because a race with upwards of 15,000 racers was supposed to be taking place nearby, and the road would be closed.
On the way to church, we stopped at a Burger King in Santa Cruz, where we filled up our tank (to overflowing - literally) on the BEST veggie we have very seen!
After church, we enjoyed another delicious lunch prepared by our hostess, then took a Sunday stroll through the streets of Santa Cruz.
A fairly busy and active place, there were beachcombers, bikers, board-walkers and more.
The local museum had a large humpback for climbing
Aren't they cute?
Santa Cruz beach
A view of the boardwalk
Next we visited a park where local musicians had gathered
They had some banjo players too
Even some bass players
The best part (for the kids) was all these fun slides!
Ha ha! Look at that face.
Mmmmm, cherries and watermelon
Then we walked back to our host's home
We walked past these beautiful homes, they easily cost $1,000,000+
Even the purple ones.
Even ones with VW Buses
Lots of flowers in sunny CA
I like the chrome.
I like peace.
Peace Out, Santa Cruz
