Hanging Out in Santa Cruz

Another beautiful beach day in Santa Cruz, so we decided to head to the beach in Capitola, a town adjacent to Santa Cruz. Quite a few people on the beach but not nearly as many as in Southern California.


Here's Bill and me:

After walking on the beach for awhile, we figured we deserved some ice cream. My sister had discovered a nearby cafe called Cafe Violette. Our Mom was named Violette (spelled like that), so we thought it appropriate for us to pay a visit. Oh! The ice cream was good too!

In searching for Cafe Violette's link, I discovered that the UK has a place by the same name, and it looks lovely! Another place to visit if I get back there!


There was a car show being held right by the cafe, and this was my favorite car:

Hi Nancy,
Beautiful Beach. Hope you are both having a great time. By the title of your blog can I assume that you know your wines? If so can you suggest a red wine that might taste good. I really dislike wine but I have been told that a red wine is good for the blood. Do you know if that is true?

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Nancy, looks like you are having a wonderful time and enjoying some nice weather up north. I'm glad that you're having a fun time visiting your sister. I enjoyed looking at all of your photos. And how cool that there is a Cafe with the same name as your mom, Violette.

Thanks so much for sharing. Safe travels.

The beach in Santa Cruz is beautiful. That is very cool that you and your sister found a Cafe with same name as your mom.
