The August Break

July 27, 2016


Can you believe July is almost over, it was such a whirl wind month for sure. August brings with it a different kind of summer magic that should be captured and shared. I'm participating in Susannah's photo a day The August Break. If you would like to participate click on the pic above.

Following a Dream

July 25, 2016

I'm traveling to a hippie town,
the signs are removed so it can't be found

Yet I had a dream so I must go,
down the highway to the open road

Further down to where land meets the sea,
Bolinas is a place I must be.

Tomorrow holds a new adventure!

Surfs Up

July 21, 2016

Summer is sure flying by, and we are living it up. The beginning of this week I took the kids back to Santa Cruz. I realized I haven't even posted all the photos from the last trip we took out there. All the appreciation goes to my husband for understanding the wanderlust of this gypsy, and he works very hard to provide for our tribe. As much as the summers seem to slide by year after year and the kids are growing up quick, it is nice that they are the age to just hop in the truck at any moment to go on an adventure. Three more weeks and the oldest kids go back to school and then the week after that the other two go......sigh. Okay as I recall I promised surfing.


I'm pretty new to shooting videos with my camera so I apologize in advance for shaky panning footage. I plan on throwing in Santa Cruz 2016 Summer Edition here and there in my post's. I hope everyone is enjoying all the blissful moments summer has to offer.

Biggest Little Surf Museum

July 13, 2016

701 W CLIFF DR, SANTA CRUZ C.A. 95060

Mark Abbot Memorial Lighthouse aka the Surfing Museum

Step into surfing history & memorabilia.

Transition of the surf board throughout the years.

A surfboard stop and shop out of an old gas station with a resident  monkey, back in the day......

Early surfing board with signatures of the greats who made waves.

Of course when you surf  the shark's domain your bound to learn who rules the ocean.

Surfing through the decades.

Plaque honoring 1885 Hawaiian Surfers

I'm glad we decided to finally stop by and check out the first Surf Museum in the world! Admission and parking is free, and wait time to get into museum was zero. You can literally step in and loop around step out, it was that small. Don't be fooled by it's size for the history and nostalgia was immense. To get more in the surfing vibe we walked a few feet to peer over  the cliffs to view the surfer's catching waves at Steamer Lane, which will be my next post....so stay tuned.

Voted best Boardwalk in the USA

July 06, 2016

That's right it's official the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk was recently voted the best boardwalk in America. Lucky for us a 2 hr plus road trip plops us into the land of surf, sand, and sun filled fun. On our most recent trip to Santa Cruz we explored quite a few different sceneries but today I will share the boardwalk.
