today we left our great hostel in san francisco and headed down the coast in our great left hand drive car, the scenoury is awesome as we are drive along route 1 which is a high way that hugs the coast. the coast is made up of farm land, areas that look like dessert, and great hilly valleys. the beach sides and very rocky and semi brown sand. we aived in santa cruz and book a place on the main beach, and than went for a walk along the board walk. saw the theme park on the board walk but it unfortunately was closed. following this we had dinner at a restaraunt on the beach. and than played in the arcade casino on the shore.
