At Santa Cruz Boardwalk

We sidetracked today on our way to San Francisco and made a stop for the kids at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Not completely removed from the unabated socialism of the area, the family attraction is on the beach in Santa Cruz where the following activities are against the law:

Alcohol
Pets
Bottles
Motor Vehicles
Fishing
Skateboarding
Baseball

That’s right, “baseball”.

Of course there was no mention of laws against pan handling or sleeping on the beach and a few of the locally coddled parasites (read “BUMS”) were out plying their knowingly entitled trade.

Back to fun, the boardwalk and muni pier have seen a revitalization over the past few years. Once inside the gates, the crowd was all families having a good time.

Our older kids stuck to rides that challenged their digestive systems to keep the lunch down they had eaten, thirty minutes prior.



----with diversions that gave them their best bang for the buck on their athletic abilities and to shoot projectiles, large and fast.



* On Thursday, the 21st, we will be in San Francisco. We will be on a walking tour of Chinatown with a Dim Sum lunch and then off to Alcatraz. By the end of the day, I am sure I will be longing for narrow, windy, vacant roads again.
