Voted the World’s Best Seaside Park

Family Day at the Beach, 1969

When I was 6 my dad took our family from San Jose to Santa Cruz. I remember seeing the roller coaster from the parking lot. We went on the beach, set up our towels, and played all day in the water. It was so much fun. My dad passed away a year later. Santa Cruz is one of the most special and happiest memories I have.

I will find the picture soon and put it up. I have one in my book.
