Ferris Wheel at Santa Cruz
by Diana at City Light Photography



I am off for a few days to BRIEFLY visit my freakshow family and then to hang out in Santa Cruz with my fan-farking-tastic little sister.

Courtesy of a distant relative with a ROCKIN' friends and family rate, my sister and I have rented a house MERE STEPS FROM THE BEACH in Santa Cruz. HELL YESS!!!

I just can't wait to chill, take in some sites, dip a very small portion of my body in the ocean, eat and drink like royalty, and just unwind and forget me troubles.

I have blog posts scheduled for the rest of the week and will be back to comment on your blogs next week. :)

LATER, FOLKS!!!!

I hope you have a fabulous time. I love that place. and I love ferrish wheels. I photographed the one in paris and sold so many prints of it. xo

Ace said...

I love ferris wheel pictures. I think I will start collecting them. It is something about reminiscing about fanciful childhood fun. This post made me homesick for Santa Cruz. I have not been there in two years. So you inspired me to go ahead and book a trip over Thanksgiving! Yipee! I am so excited!
