... views of a blue, yellow, amber, purple, and red sky was breathtaking. Brian was passenger at that point and got some amazing photos! After the quick stop in Solvang, it was on to our hotel for the night. Tomorrow we begin the journey for Half Moon Bay with stops planned at Hearst Castle, Big Sur, and Carmel. It will be another long day of driving, but the scenery will make it all worthwhile! Signing off from the sack for ...

It was, you'll be interested to know, on this very spot that Ulysses S Grant's son wrote the biography of his father. One of the classics, I think you'll agree. Santa Cruz is also the home of the man who invented the wet suit. There's not much you can say after that except it's an awful, tacky place. Don't come to Santa Cruz. Monterey wasn't much better, to be honest ...
