A Few Things I Forgot About Santa Cruz But Now I Remember

1. On a weeknight, after a certain hour, everyone on the street downtown is drunk.

2. Every ten feet or so is a place to get really, really good tacos.

3. There are some cute things in Urban Outfitters, but you should probably leave them in the store.

I do love this town. Matt and I got in really late last night and stayed in a No Tell Motel down by the boardwalk. It's the off season, and it's a ghost town down there. Today we got busy doing nothing. That was Matt's plan. He said, "What if we spent a day doing nothing instead of doing something?" So we strolled. I had a margarita at lunch. We saw a movie in the middle of the day. Truly, it is a decadent and heedless life we're living.

Right now we're both getting a little work done, which I guess is something. We're staying with friends tonight, and then heading up the peninsula for the wedding later this weekend. Pictures to come. I hope y'all are keeping it casual.

Alrighty then. You are an excellent poster of retro hotel and motel rooms, so pony up. We want all the deets on this NO TELL. ASAP.

In the meantime, I hope you had and are having a ball. Sounds like a great romantic escape.

I was there over 30 years ago! At a camp actually that was inland and we went to the beach and the boardwalk for a day.
Wasn't the movie The Lost Boys filmed at that boardwalk??
I have a son who is dying to go to the Santa Cruz skate park.
Can't wait for the update! Hope you're having a great time.
