The Santa Cruz boardwalk always feels so much like “summer” to me. It’s on a beach where people actually go in the water. It’s the kind of tourist attraction that you go to when you’re not from California and you want to see California. I don’t go often but when I go I like to play there.
Pier and fog in Pacifica on the drive down Pacman candy above – which actually came from the Cartoon Art Museum, not Santa Cruz but is fitting with the picture below showing that yet again I got the high score on a Ms Pacman machine.
