Tuesday morning, August 26th – we are now in Santa Cruz, where we will remain until Thursday, August 28th. We are staying at the same place we stayed last year, which is only two blocks up from the Boardwalk entrance.
On Wednesday evening, we decided to check out the Santa Cruz Wharf.
Dalton located a really great place for us to eat dinner: Gilda’s Restaurant. We had a delicious meal and the views were fantastic.
Then finally, on Thursday morning, after we checked out of the motel, we decided to drive over to see “The Mystery Spot.”
All in all, we had a really nice time in Santa Cruz – the weather was great, no problems, no worries – until much too soon, it was time to go home.
Leaving somewhat later than we had intended, we were soon back on Highway 1, going North.
After crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, we found Highway 101 a virtual parking lot, with traffic backed up for as far as could be seen.
We arrived just before dusk; tired, hot, dusty – and of course, HUNGRY!
Home, sweet home – until our next escape!
And that ends part 3, and completes, our Summer Road Trip of 2014.
