I, Janae Jacobs, will never go sightseeing the boring way that I used to…. from now on I will visit all of the things in the town that I want to see by running.
Brittany is moving back to Alaska (BOOOOOOOOOOOOO) and so we are trying to get everything in together before I go back to Utah on Friday. We knew we wanted to go to Santa Cruz so we decided to just run everywhere we went there. It may look like Brooke is upset about this idea in the above picture but I promise she wasn’t.
First stop was the pier to talk to the sea lions. Those things are hilarious and the whole time Brooke was trying to impersonate their sounds.
After hanging out at the pier we ran over to the boardwalk and ran up and down it. It was so nice to be there on a weekday because usually this place is packed with people.
The amount of anger that I had that the deep fried Twinkies and Oreo stand to the left of us was closed was not healthy.
Our legs then took us up a huge hill (where I thought about faking heat stroke so that we could walk up it but didn’t) and over to the main street.
We didn’t stop at all of the cool boutiques and awesome clothing stores on main street… we stopped at all of the candy stores.
We got ice cream from Marini’s Candies (they have fudge, candy and ice cream. I tried my first chocolate covered piece of bacon in an ice cream they have there called ‘Vegan’s Nightmare’ and it was delicious). We also bought candy there and Brittany said, ‘time for dessert, let’s eat candy’ after we finished our ice cream. I knew we were soul mates.
And then we ran back to the car. I was actually amazed at how easy it was to run after eating ice cream and candy.
Brooke just chilaxin as we were getting everything out of the stroller before driving up to Davenport.
Davenport is in my top five favorite places in the world. I really feel like it is MY SPOT.
The scenery is ridiculous. I could stand here and stare at this all day long.
After our amazing beach time we went across the street to my favorite little restaurant, Whale City Bakery and Grill.
We started with side salads. I used ranch and the vinaigrette on my salad… it was a good mixture.
And then the main event. FISH AND CHIPS. I could live off of you.
I got home later and then before I knew it Bangs and her husband came over for vegetable tostadas which were also insanely good. I liked yesterday. A lot.
