I am lucky to live in the wonderland that is Santa Cruz. Have you visited this crazy beautiful town and the surrounding mountains and seas? I'm just so thrilled to be back, I thought I'd share three things that give me joy now, in July. I may make this a regular, monthly feature. Hold me to it!
The first thing I love about Santa Cruz in July...
The sea lion who surfs in to bark at the tourists on the beach at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
The second best thing I love about Santa Cruz in July...
Tourist kids seeing the ocean for the very first time.
The third best thing I love about Santa Cruz in July...
Riding my bicycle to Wilder Ranch along the dirt road at the bluffs.
Have you visited Santa Cruz? Do you live here? What are your favorite things about Santa Cruz in July?
1) The first time I was in Santa Cruz, I had just escaped the insane clutches of a Moonie Commune and was traveling with a medieval theater troupe in 1973. I loved it! I remember being inspired by both Cabrillo College and the UC campus. That’s where I wanted to go to college.
2) SC is where I bought my O’Neal 7 mil purple free dive wet suit with matching 27 lb. bullet weight belt. It was my submarine fashion statement, the seals and otters agreed!
3) Many shows at Kuumbwa Jazz and Moe’s Alley.
