When we went nearby for breakfast, they were launching hot air balloons from the parking lot! What an amazing sight.
We stayed one night at a B&B in Capitola, just outside of Santa Cruz. It is a funky little town with some unique shops and a pretty beach.
Pretty flowers seen in Carmel on New Year's eve.... It's been a a time to think of New Year's resolutions. Mine are: to get better organized; to make more time for art; to go gray. These will all be tough resolutions to keep, but I'm determined to do each of them!
