Well Ben and I are posted up in the Denver airport, waiting for our connecting flight, and I’m having fun going through some of the many pictures we took over the past two weeks in California. Here’s an overload from our first full day out of the frozen tundra we left behind in Ohio (a million more pictures after the jump):
^Ben just blending in with the horizon
^how neat is this staircase to the ocean that the surfers were using?
^a little father-son bonding
^had to capture my f.i.l using this floral umbrella
^^all I can think of with this picture is the scene from Jungle Book “What do you wanna do?” “I don’t know, what do you wanna do?”
^the water on the trees kinda looked like Christmas lights
^what a cutie 😉
^After the Santa Cruz coast we wandered a bit more south to Capitola
^how cute is this little part of Capitola?
^part of it is built along this large canal that leads out to the water
^a homage to when this blog was “La Vita e Bella”
^^we headed back to Santa Cruz for a late lunch on the pier at a new restaurant called Fire Fish (and it happened to be one of the top five meals I’ve ever had). If you go during the week, as for the local/resident’s menu and get the salmon. And then plan on being disappointed with every other fish you ever eat.
^the view from the pier
^this huge guy wasn’t even phased by people walking right past him
^I didn’t dare get any closer
^the view from the restaurant – so beautiful!
