      This motel is on a central location to the city centre and the boardwalk. The accomodation is comfortable and clean. The owner manager needs to learn how to be nice to people, he was extremely unfriendly and I wonder why he is in this area of business. He is the only place in America that wouldn't take our travel card as payment (which is just as good as cash) and then when paid in full still demanded a cash deposit. We overheard conversations with other people which was as unfriendly. I wouldn't return due to how rude he was! Beware.

      I finally got a chance to sleep in.. Wayne even went down and got my breakfast. We set off finally to find the real Santa Cruz not the horrible, noisey stuff. We walked along the riverbank in reasonable temperature of 30+ till we reached the town centre. It has 1 main street with lovely trees and cafes scattered along it. Found a great local coffee …

      Today we started the day again with waffles and made them ourselves! Well sort of ..put the mixture into the girdle . We set off to a well known historical castle in San Simeon. The castle sits way up in the hills and was built by a wealthy man called William Hearst. We arrived at the bottom of the hill to be ferried up to the castle by the bus …

      ... splashing around happily in the waters below. We spotted rabbits in the greenery as we walked beside the beach, scampering between bushes. It was lovely to enjoy the wildlife surrounding us! That afternoon we headed to Santa Cruz to check in at our pre booked accommodation. Unfortunately a dishonest hotel owner refused to accept our booking at the agreed price, so had to look else where. It suddenly dawned on us that sense of feeling homeless. All accommodation around us had ...

      ... In the evening i had a Burger at Betty's which was also really tasty. I feel i need to change my diet though, i feel i am eating too much junk. After Tea, i decided to go see Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the Cinema which i was impressed with 8.5/10, I'd recommend it.

      Santa Cruz was really cool, it was nice to slow down and stay somewhere for a day rather than shooting through.

      Although travelling through ...
