Morgan Hill, CA
Before I write about my fun yesterday,
a few shots of goings on here in Morgan Hill..
We have someone moving in right behind our window..
I'm not good at identifying these kind of birds,
but she looks like she's getting ready to have a family :-)
Yesterday was the best day ever!
We spent the day with our good friends Greg & Connie,
while celebrating my 58th birthday.
We started out having breakfast out at a local diner, Betsy's.
Then Greg drove as we made our way to Santa Cruz for the day.
It couldn't have been more perfect, with sunny skies and highs in the upper 60's.
We walked along the boardwalk, which is quiet this time of year.
We really enjoyed walking around, and ended up on the pier,
where we were entertained by the sea lions.
This guy was trying to keep his catch away from the seagulls..
These guys were just being lazy!
How about the views of the boardwalk?
I took a lot of seagull pictures that were around,
but this guy made us all laugh..
I guess he was getting a better view from the top of this car!
After we got our fill of the pier, we wandered up the street
It was a fascinating place, with free admission,
and a great 15 minute film about the bay.
The sanctuary encompasses a shoreline length of 276 miles
and 4,601 square nautical miles of ocean,
extending an average distance of 30 miles from shore.
At its deepest point, the sanctuary reaches more than two miles,
which makes this larger than Yellowstone National Park in size.
All this walking around made us hungry again!
I got my pick of dinner venue,
so of course I chose Phil's,
one of my favorite places :-)
The four of us had a terrific meal,
and stayed to watch some musicians play a good mix.
Greg & Connie surprised me with a terrific cake
at their rig once we got home..
George also had some nice flowers for me :-)
We had the best day, one to remember for a long time!
