A Fun Family Trip to the Mountains and Beach
We took a trip to Santa Cruz over the Labor Day weekend. We usually go to Aptos when we come to the area but my youngest wanted to stay in the mountains for a change. We found a nice Airbnb in Boulder Creek, a small community in the Santa Cruz mountains. It was a nice change of pace to staying at the beach. I can’t say I like it more, but it is nice to change things up now and then.
We did a day trip down to Gayle’s Bakery (a must) and then to Monterey Bay Aquarium and finally, Carmel. The next day we went into downtown Santa Cruz to walk around and I was able to take some street photography while my wife and daughter shopped. It was a nice and relaxing weekend and I can’t wait to go back as Aptos and the surrounding areas are one of my favorite places to relax.
