Under the boardwalk, down by the sea…

It’s been another long week filled with work, the bane of my existence. I didn’t do any gardening, and even the time spent enjoying the garden was measured in minutes, not hours. This weekend won’t see much garden activity either because we’re heading to Santa Cruz, one of my favorite places to visit on the Central California coast.

I look forward to visiting the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum again…

…and we’ll also hang out at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
