... cable car, but the bus will go: so we hopped on the bus and then off at the Lombard street… and see there, the cable car was coming, so we hopped on and went all the way to Chinatown… up and down it goes here, a little bit in Chinese everywhere, some cool Chinese looking buildings, the china gate… and I think it’s lunch time: so what about some Chinese… we ended up in a nice ...
... shop. It cannot be said enough because thankfulness is pouring out of my heart towards them. Get to know them better @http://www.travisandshannon.com/our-st ory.html and you'll understand what I mean.
The next day I traveled by train and automobile and public transportation to the Bay Area as my rig was still being worked on and I had to catch a flight out of San Francisco over the weekend. Here's to the backpacker's life and hittin' up old friends. Loving this adventure!
... we had to have tea, so we went for a walk around the town; found a pub called theMucky Duck and had a lovely meal. We got talking to the Owner who was an ex rugby player who had visited NZ about 5 years ago. He had played in Christchurch and Auckland and was full of questions. After that we went for another walk and saw that there was a Classic Car convention and there were many lovely cars to view. It was a nice finish to the day and then off to bed.
... Bundts' adventures. Riley still loves to chase balls.
It was easy to do all my laundry.
We had a picnic completely furnished by Stephanie. We ate at the harbor and avoided the crowds because the beach was hot and crowded. We talked until we got tired and then went to sleep.
The bed was great and Charley, Della and Derek's dog, said he would sleep in the room with me. So nobody was alone and everybody could snore in peace...
... protectors for my iPhone. I think that prices are quite a bit cheaper here than at home. After a BBQ supper, cooked on the deck with view of Monterey Bay in the distance, we finished watching our blog slides. Brian also showed some pictures of their tour in 2012 of the Baltic countries before we retired. Not quite over the jet lag ...

Weekend in santa cruz
Took a trip to santa cruz and found this amazing little hotel on the ocean. It is a place a will never forget, just 45 minutes to monterey and within walking distance to anything in SC. Absolutely Amazing!!!
My favorite place to stay in Santa Cruz
My favorite place to stay in Santa Cruz. A little pricey but the location, the view from the gardens and the friendly feeling is quite nice. Yes, try to splurge and get one of the rooms with the private deck and hot tub.
Ok, but not great
When we drove up to the Sea and Sand Inn I was a little concerned because it looked small and old. It turned out to be a decent place, but mainly because of the great view of the ocean from the balcony. The room was very small and the bathroom smelled terribly of disinfectant (maybe that's not a bad thing?), but it served our needs ok as we didn't spend alot of time in the room. The road noise coming in from the bathroom was loud at night so that window had to be kept shut, but the sounds of the ocean and sea lions in the morning was nice. Would try someplace else next time - it was expensive and not quite worth it.
We had a nice stay here, but make sure you get one of the newer rooms.
These have much nicer bathrooms etc.etc.. We were initially placed in a standard room, and then complained because we didn't feel the price charged reflected what we got. The second (new) room we were offered was very nice though. Location is A1, no noise from the road, just the waves breaking on the beach below. Breakfast is good.
Best deck and hot tubs in Santa Cruz
If you like privacy and comfort, the executive suites at this hotel are the best. Private hot tubs outside on the private deck overlooking the Bay and the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf are the best in town. The breakfast in the morning is charming.
Great location in Santa Cruz
This little hotel has a great location. I was worried at first that there would be alot of road noise but the surf rolling in at night blocks that. The room I'd have to say was average (a tad musty) but the view and location were perfect. Walking distance to restaurants and boardwalk, friendly staff and wonderful home- made scones for breakfast.
Wife and I and two teenagers stayed here from July 6-10, 2003, and had a great time. Leave the windows open at night and hear the surf from the ocean and sea lions in the early AM. The place is clean and the staff is friendly. Views from all rooms are great but who cares about the views. You can go outside and have coffee in a huge patio area that overlooks the beaches. Located close to plenty of dining options, beaches, boardwalk and BARS. You have to keep your priorities straight!
We'll be going back next year.
If you have the money, splurge on an upgrade to an executive suite ect. We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend it was fantastic. They have private gardens overlooking the beach and the pier, boardwalk, Cowells, and west cliff drive are within walking distance. I used to live in Santa Cruz and I think it is probably the best boutique hotel around. I just got married down the street and the management graciously let us use the private gardens for our bridal party pictures prior to the wedding. They are spectacular. This is a great place for an intimate affair or anniversary. If you have kids, stay next door at the West Coast hotel where there is a pool and spa and alot of other kids. Regular rooms are a bit small.
Wonderful Place to Stay!
We had a great vacation in Santa Cruz. The Sea and Sand Inn provided us the perfect place to stay while enjoying the California Central Coast.The staff is A1. The rooms are clean and beautifully furnished. The setting is spectacular. The Inn is located on a cliff overlooking the Santa Cruz boardwalk and pier, with beautiful views of the Monterey Bay. We loved having coffee on our private patio (with spa) while watching surfers and beachgoers below.Truly a dream vacation! We hope to return in the near future!
Our three day stay was a very enjoyable stay.The folks working at the Inn made sure our stay was nothing short of a care free fun stay. The view from the grounds was breath taking and helped make our trip a memory of fun fun and want,(wanting to stay longer and can't wait to return). I wish to thank the Sea and Sand Inn for such a great stay.
