Got to Santa Cruz after an eventful day. By the time we settled down in our motel room it was pretty late. Had just enough time to edit the day's activities (see the notes on Lost Hills) on Travelpod and pass out. Made the quick thinking decision to not worry about the schedule, and take it easy. The following morning, instead of packing and getting out the door by 8am, we decided to take our time and took a walk down the boardwalk and put our feet in the sand.
The kids were really jazzed to go for the walk, although I think they were just hoping the arcade would be open. Fortunately it wasn't, so instead we walked by the beach volleyballers and made our way for the pier, where close to a hundred seals were busy sunning themselves under our curious lens. They were really cute, except when they had to go to the bathroom, which we all agreed was just a little nasty.
About 10:30am we finished our sightseeing and got out of our room, ready to move on for the day.
