Which would you choose??
Well, Mike and I spent our anniversary weekend in Santa Cruz. We decided to go down and check out the Boardwalk and the Wharf. The wharf is interesting, on one side is the Boardwalk with all the amusement rides and on the other there are nice calm ocean waves. The amusement side drove me crazy. It was loud and crowded, filled with barely clothed, tatooed, loud, beer drinking people some who were headed off to jail!! I didn't like the feeling there at all. Why is that?? Is something wrong with me??
Anyway, we found a nice restaurant and eat our lunch overlooking the beautiful Monterey Bay, the calm side of the wharf. Mike notice a sign offering harbor cruises, that sounded like fun. The cruise was very nice except for a few loud, obnoxious beer drinking men. We saw cute little sea otters and sea lions. We saw lots of sail boats and two light houses. It was very calming to be out on the ocean, that is as long as we stayed away from the loud
obnoxious beer drinking men.
We tried walking the Boardwalk but it was just too much so we headed to Henry Cowell Redwood State Park. I loved the peaceful, serene feeling there. It's hard to take a picture of a redwood tree and do it justice. Just trust me if you have never seen one, there are massive and very magnificent!! Maybe this video will help you get a little perspective.
I chose serenity!! And I'm glad I did!! There is absolutely nothing wrong with that!!
