Road Trip Day 2: Salinas to Ben Lomond

Great night at Ted’s comfortable airbnb in Salinas, then drove to Santa Cruz to see the traditional amusements on the boardwalk, including the Giant Dipper which dates from 1924. Anyone who knows me will know that the last place you would expect to find me (apart from on a horse) is on a roller coaster. But here I am!

Other attractions of Santa Cruz.

We then drove up to view the giant redwoods in the state park.

Tonight’s accommodation is in an amazing airbnb perched on the side of a forested mountain with magnificent views and full eco credentials.

After settling in we went out to Ben Lomond for a German meal of sausage, sauerkraut and weissbier.

Crochet, colour, braiding, macrame, jewellery - some of the things I'm currently loving and learning about, often inspired by travel. I also want to explore more about eco-friendly materials.
