We are in the process of creating new traditions.....this is second year of renting a beach cottage in Santa Cruz where Mark and I met and raised our three children.
It's a light filled and nicely amenity'd place to stay, although I do bring a few things from home...cloth napkins, plates, my favorite coffee cup, my favorite cocktail glass, a down comforter with duvet....just so I feel at home.
We had an uneventful drive, leaving at 4:30 a.m. and arriving at lunch time. We settled in, grocery shopped, had a wander downtown and walked on the ocean. The ocean is more powerful here, and it's cold, different from the mild climate in San Diego.
Now we're tucked in for the evening, Miss Maya cuddled up next to me on the couch and salmon marinating in teriyaki sauce (one of the Santa Cruz memories from the Fish Lady in Capitola)
I'm surrounded by beads which I'll show you in the morning...I have a new favorite bag, and I've brought four of them along, filled with all my favorite tools and beads and my sketchbook filled with ideas.
