The beach has the original Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk for carnival fun
with games and rides and music
and of course,
lots of sand for relaxing.
A little trivia~ part of the movie The Lost Boys was filmed on the boardwalk
and in the Santa Cruz area.

Since I love the beach, my husband loves the mountains and the kids love the boardwalk
it’s pretty much perfect for us and is a favorite spot to getaway and re-charge
and so while they have been having fun at the Boardwalk,
have been pretty much
the kids usually swim or work out
and my husband and I love to sit on the small patio outside our hotel room
and enjoy that amazing fresh coastal mountain air.
‘You know you might be a design blogger if…’
I used a few small plates, etc that we brought with us and whatever else I had on hand
A gauzy white shirt was a perfect tablecloth
and I set out a couple of the little candles that we had in the car
I gathered a few wildflowers & pieces of fern while on a walk for a little bit of color
and the roses were part of a bouquet that we picked up for someone special
while we were in town
It was simple but perfect for enjoying the beautiful evening and sunset
and after snapping a few photos we sat with the kids and enjoyed a special dessert.
