Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks as always to Pirate’s Cove and The Other McCain for the Rule Five links!

It’s hot here in the San Jose area this time of year,  but if one is seeking a break from the heat you can always drive down to the coast at Santa Cruz (leave early to avoid the beach traffic) and enjoy the uniformly cool 65-70 degree days on the coast.

On Saturday last Mrs. Animal did just that.  We visited the rather wonderful University of California/Santa Cruz Arboretum.  It was cool and slightly foggy while we were there, but not too foggy for photos.  If any True Believers are in the area, it’s worth a visit.

We followed up the Arboretum with a drive up the coast.  Photos follow beneath the fold.
