I have always lived by a beach, but it feels like I always get busy and don’t make time to go. This summer I made it over to Santa Cruz for a day and had a wonderful time. We were lucky enough to have amazing weather. I felt like a kid again; we played all sorts of games and had a fabulous time! After our time at the beach we shopped in downtown Santa Cruz and then went to the boardwalk for an outdoor concert. The day ended perfectly with a double scoop of chocolate and coconut ice cream in a waffle cone from Marianne’s Ice Cream shop. I am going to make sure that I have a few more days at the beach before the summer gets away from me.
