Life's A Beach

I have spent the past few weeks cleaning up my classroom, figuring out what I'm going to keep, giving away stuff to teachers and students, throwing away things nobody wanted, and packing fifty-six moving boxes.  I'm not quite finished, but at least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

This weekend... I decided to reward myself with food and some fresh air.  There's an amazing bakery in Capitola that my friend and I enjoy, so we piled her dog and her sister's dog into her SUV and headed over the hill.  About forty-five minutes later we were stuffing our faces with yummy bacon quiches, delicious bacon 'n egg croissants, and rich hot chocolate with fresh whipped cream.

I wanted to hit up a skateboard shop after breakfast, but it was too early... so we drove a few miles north into Santa Cruz and walked the dogs near the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum.  The weather was beautiful and it was a pleasant reminder of just how lucky I am to live in the Bay Area.

Even Tony had the opportunity to come out, catch some rays, breathe in some fresh air, and check out the beautiful Pacific Ocean.  He hasn't had many photo opportunities lately, but I'll try to remember to take him out next week when I bring the honor students to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

Until then... happy Wednesday... go Sharks... and sayonara!
