There is no place I would rather be on a Thanksgiving day than Santa Cruz, CA. The winds are blowing off shore and the waves are pumping. The nights were cold but the days sunny. I am lucky enough to say my parents live in Santa Cruz, so Megan and I try to drive North from our home in Newport Beach whenever we can. We probably take 6-7 road trips per year to the Bay for some surf and R&R. Grizz loves it too. Every time we're in town we visit The Forest of Nisene Marks SP for some trail running and just getting down with our nature side. This forest is HUGE going all the way from the coast DEEP into the Santa Cruz mountains. Check out some of the pics I took of the trip below.
