Santa Cruz

We drove an hour west to Santa Cruz with Sun-Ling's sister and nephew for some coastal hiking; plus a visit to the famous Santa Crux Wharf. After all the winter and spring rains, the wild flowers along the Wilder Ranch trail were amazing. Not to mention the rugged coastline which reminded us of Spain and Portugal. And just one mile north of the Santa Cruz Wharf, we came across the 2nd surfing museum of this trip. Wow! The first was in Nazare, Portugal. Wow! How many surfing museums can there be in the entire world? .....Twenty, according to this article at SURFERTODAY.com/

On the way home we stopped for a stroll on the boardwalks at Neary Lagoon Park.
