Along the Santa Cruz Boardwalk
We had to do some proper candy-floss type seaside too, so stopped off at Santa Cruz.
It's got all the traditional seaside ingredients, a pier, a boardwalk, a massive wooden big dipper, arcades and general raucousness.
We explored the big rides, the stalls and the places selling salt water taffy.
Near the middle is a place called the Cocoanut Grove. There were various tales of the events and spectacles of this place from earlier times.
Perhaps a simpler type of amusement, but some spectacles that can't be repeated in the modern world.
