Our annual visit to the Boardwalk. Spent some time in the water. Dinner on the wharf. Then closed out the park on Coca Cola night.
In many ways our yearly visit to the Boardwalk has become one of those things the boys look forward to the most. Last year my eldest got to ride the Giant Dipper for the first time. This year my youngest is tall enough that, with a chaperone, he can go on most of the grown-up rides as well. So this ended up being the first year we started at the non-kiddie end of the Boardwalk and worked our way in the other direction until the clock ran out.
And another summer, another trip to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. A full full day this time where the boys played on the beach for a few hours before closing out the Boardwalk at 11pm. This was also a special trip since the older kids were tall enough to go on the Giant Dipper for the first time. Also, because we’re off the little kid rides I get to actually ride things again. This is a lot of fun but does cut into my photography time.
What looks to be becoming our annual trip to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Unlike last year, I actually got to go on more than just kiddie rides.* But the evening was still mostly just letting the kids run riot in the kid ride sections. They’re both pretty fearless—except that for some reason the younger one only wants to ride on the benches on the Merry Go Round.
