We spent Father’s Day in Santa Cruz which is admittedly one of my personal favorite towns to visit. The mister likes it too, mostly for the food and the locally roasted coffee shops although he prefers a warm beach to anything on the Pacific Coast. We ended up on the beach in front of the Boardwalk with a ton of other people, although you can’t really tell from that photo. I thought the water looked particularly pretty with the different blues and greens, and the weather really cooperated that day. While Amaya immediately made friends to play with and spent hours digging in the sand, Kiki refused to put her feet on the sand and remained on the blanket the entire afternoon!
