Froze on the coast. Well, not really, but the foggy chill in the mornings is something I'm not used to. Got home yesterday to 99 degree weather. What a shock to get out of the AC car and step out into the valley oven.
Rosemary drove for the whole trip, which made it so nice for Cat and me, since neither of us would have braved the traffic in Santa Cruz, and winding around Santa Cruz mountain roads. We had to get to Boulder Creek to our favorite shop. Cat bought several things from Chris Flynn, who is so clever with her use of laces and vintage fabrics. We also shopped at Carolines in Capitola, a shop that benefits many local non profits, run by volunteers. We always stop there, always find something. I bought a necklace and a beach wrap, doubles as a shawl/wrap. Just enough to keep the cool sea breezes off my shoulders.
Here are some of the goodies I came home with. A chicken wire shoe for the garden, a red trivet, my new necklace and a piece of fabric. I love how colorful they look together.
Did you notice there are no pics of the ocean, the beaches, or anything nautical. Not this time. Too busy doing other things. LOL
