santa cruz inspire

a quick trip to escape the heat of so-cal sun.
1st stop: natural bridges....always my favorite
the penny ice creamery
for a verve coffee with chocolate almond praline on a fresh waffle cone
while the kids enjoy sparky's root beer (pacific grove brewed) ice cream floats
good-time music from the great morgani accordianist
organic shaped dream catchers hanging in a window display
favorite shop: stripe
my sister bought this gorgeous natural linen textile
tomboy style book by is on my wishlist along with maguba  high heel purple suede clogs for fall
next shop over: stripe men also rules!
i adore all the antiques interwoven in their displays and gorgeous tellason denim san francisco made  jeans for men
took a drive by my old ucsc college apartment behind this house (hasn't changed in years!)
where i studied printmaking with zarina hashmi and foundry sculpture with  doyle foreman
the best of times!
traditional brazilian lunch at  cafe brasil and happy hour with sid? at hula's island grill and tiki room.
 bye bye santa cruz, i love you
