We started out on a nature hike in sandborn/skyline county park. This turned into..."hey, let's go to my uncle's cabin!" Which lead us to Boulder Creek, CA where we had a beer with the locals at Boulder Creek Brewery and ate fried pickles (which I HIGHLY recommend trying).
Next, the idea of..."let's go to Santa Cruz!" and off we were. Nothing could stop us, not even rain...I even think it made things a bit more romantic. Through winding, 2-lane mountain roads we talked, listened to music and pondered how awesome the day had been/was going to be.
Finally, ocean views, fish n'chips, corn chowder, surf boards and taffy made long-lasting impressions that I will NEVER forget. WHAT a day?!
|This is where we ended up...Santa Cruz. AMAZING even if it's a rainy, cold evening. WOW. Thanks Chris for taking such a beautiful picture!|
|I needed these things! My Alexandra Cassaniti carry-all backpack and old-school 35 mm camera, but sadly, left them at home :(|
|again, our final destination.|

|the beginning of our journey...making our way down the path less traveled in the redwood forrest.|
|there's really nothing better than logs with moss, streams, redwood trees, ferns and friends.|
