It was awesome waking up this am to the sound of the waves from Half Moon Bay.
We packed up our stuff... and headed down the coast highway towards Santa Cruz... weaving in and out of a few little towns... some gorgeous farm lands (berry farms... horse ranches... artichokes!.. and more)... then came across the gorgeous sandy beach at Pescodero Point. And so we stopped.
After drenching ourselves in salty sea water... ( and changing into something dry)... we went to Pidgeon Point. There is a lighthouse there... and for those of you who have known me for a bit... you know I have a huge thing for lighthouses. This particular one is under construction... although... even in it's dilapidated state... it was hauntingly beautiful.
From there... we headed to Santa Cruz for a wonderful meal at Las Palmas Taco Bar... the food was excellent! ... And then we stopped for coffee at the Java Junction.... which totally hit the spot :)
From there on... it was a scenic drive to Fresno... where we stayed in a Ramada Inn.
