|A leaf tattoo in Bonny Doon.|
|Inside the Mountain Brewery.|
|Playing bananagrams and drinking Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery IPA.|
|Peach, Onion and Gorgonzola Tarts, and Mast Brother's Chocolate.|
|A sandwich de rue, with smoked chicken from our local butcher.|
|Off highway 1, looking over the ocean.|
|I got too excited and started munching |
before I could take a picture!
|Getting 'buzzed' at Johnny's.|
|snip, snip, snip!|
|Seasonal offerings at the Penny.|
|Fresh Almond Cake, topped with Sweet Cream Ice Cream,|
