Santa Cruz - go Slugs!

Santa Cruz is my heart home. I loved going to college in the middle of the woods overlooking the ocean. Prasenjit had never been so we spent a few days there last week enjoying the weather and spontaneously hanging out with my cousin, who I hadn't seen in 15 years!

Ice cream sandwiches from Day's Market on Seabright Ave.
I remember buying these as a special treat. If we had known they now cost $3.88 each, we may have passed!

I was glad to see UCSC is still a hotbed of activism!

Me and Eric and Avery

We went tide pooling at Natural Bridges state beach.

And finally, Matthew, the pot-bellied pig (Avery and Matthew are pets of Eric's friend Renee). We fed Matthew grapes and carrots, which was a little scary but fun.

What a lovely vacation this looks like! Makes me miss northern California. Did you get to visit any old college friends or have they mostly moved on?
