On the Road - 2

We took a drive up to Santa Cruz on Thursday. We visited the Boardwalk. The only other time I've been there was several years ago with Katie and she was very upset that I wouldn't go on the roller coaster with her. I kept telling her to ride it herself and I'd wait, but either she didn't want to ride it alone or she thought maybe I'd drive off laughing while she was on the roller coaster. Despite full court press badgering from her, I refused to go since I do not like roller coasters. This time I didn't have to worry about it since Julie feels the same way I do on the subject.

While admission to the place is free, parking is $11 (or $1.50 an hour at the meters) and you pay for whatever ride you want to go on. The food is also expensive.

Here are some pictures:

Now I said the food was expensive but then ooh yum, look what you can get:


When we got there it was overcast, like you see below, but it cleared up quickly. Having the sun out made such a big difference.


Here's a simple ride that you'd never catch me on. It just takes people up to the top then drops straight down.



A Flock of Seagulls was playing when we got there.


There's the thing I refused to ride. Yes, I know it doesn't look too daunting compared to something you'd find at Magic Mountain but it's daunting enough for me!



Mmm, more delicious treats.



More tomorrow..
