The other day we took a drive down to Santa Cruz, California. Santa Cruz is the quintessential beach town complete with surfers and an amusement park on the boardwalk. I’ve been visiting this beautiful place since my early teens for a day of fun in the sun and still enjoy going back to this day. Included in this post are three images for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to click on each, especially Image 3 where you can see the beach boardwalk panorama up close!
Image 1: Mark Abbott Memorial Lighthouse holds a surfing museum which opened its doors in June 1986 as the first surfing museum in the world. The lighthouse was built in 1967 as a memorial to surfer Mark Abott, who died while surfing at the nearby Pleasure Point surf break.
