Highway One and Santa Cruz
On Sunday, our last day of holiday, we decided to go out of San Francisco again and head in the direction of Santa Cruz. I got up early and went to the car rental place. As it was only for one day I went upmarket and got a convertible Ford Mustang and fortunately, as it was a 24 hour rental, I could drive it to the airport in the morning and drop it off there. I picked up the others and we sped off. As cheesy as it sounds, it was awesome to be driving down the coastal Highway One with sun glasses on, the top down and the San Francisco rock station, The Bone, on playing loudly on the radio.
When we got to Santa Cruz we took a walk up the pier and along the front, and enjoyed the sunshine. Eventually we decided we couldn’t have a trip to the beach without going in the sea and, despite not having towels, we went in. On the way back we went via Sunnyvale and Mountain View, just to get a glimpse of Silicone Valley and the Google Campus (Googleplex). Then back to Mart’s for a nice evening in to finish off a great holiday. Thanks for having us Martin!
