We also enjoyed a stroll through downtown Santa Cruz, though Charlie Hong Kong was closed, and the food and service at my beloved Saturn Café was not up to par this time. We found a neat store, Om Gallery, with colorful lamps, Ziggyesque clothes, and a cute proprietor. Elizabeth kept up despite her broken foot as she has a nifty "knee walker" to wheel around on. We're all glad that she has been promoted to a walking cast and is healing well!
We swung by Palo Alto for a snack on the way home (thanks opus119, I recognized California St. as a good place to go because of you!), then take-out from Herbivore in the Mission before heading home.
