Father's Day revisited...

We held a belated Father's Day celebration in Santa Cruz this weekend with both sets of parents. We started off the weekend with a walk on the beach with the dogs...nothing says Santa Cruz like early morning marine layer! We were both decked out in sweaters and jeans- it was fantastic!

After the sailing trip we headed over to the Santa Cruz Wharf for the annual event, Woodies on the Wharf. What an amazing display of craftsmanship. You know how much I love old cars. We spent a couple of hours wondering around, looking at each and every car.

Next, we met my parents at the Santa Cruz Harbor for a glorious sailboat ride aboard the Chardonnay II, a 70 foot piece of work. So much fun! Windy and cold, but well worth it.

We finished out the evening with wine a great dinner at a new restaurant, Hawgs, as well as wine on the deck. What a wonderful family we have~ we're already making plans for our next rendezvous on the other side of the state (the mountain cabins) this coming weekend. Hopefully it all works out!

I have to admit, it was incredibly hard to leave the 80 degree weather and travel back to the 111 degree valley heat. Yuck. Can't wait to escape to the mountains this weekend!
