It’s odd how much it is starting to feel like spring in California. It is January and already it is appropriate to sit outside for lunch here in the Bay and I can’t say that I hate it! I’ve only been to Santa Cruz once before, but I’m itching to make another trip and yes, I definitely want to ride on the gondola. Does anyone know how? If so, I’d like to know. Santa Cruz is such a majestic city to me. I’m not sure why I wanted to use that word to describe it, but I find it to be really very pretty. The last time I went there, I watched a bunch of surfers which wasn’t all that exciting to me because I don’t surf, myself, but it’s a cute little beach town and you wouldn’t find anything like it in the Pacific Northwest.
