My friend and I checked out the multiple botanical gardens UC Santa Cruz had to offer. All the gardens were beautiful and in bloom. Although I’d recommend to bring a water bottle because there weren’t that much shady spots when we went. The flowers were gorgeous and I felt a little bad for making us stop every five steps to take a photo.
Used my fujifilm x-e1 to capture some kayaks that were just about ready to be used to make memories and go on an adventure. I’ve gone water-rafting with friends before but that was just a one time thing. Kayaking seems more relaxing and I’d definitely love to try it some time. This could be a good arm workout as well!
It was a beautiful cloudy day to come visit the area. A friend mentioned the coffee and I wanted to check it out. The place had minimalist aesthetics and played nostalgic music. The pastries were sweet and delicious and the coffee was even more so- great combination. Devout has outside seating with cute lighting and colorful succulent plants hanging along the wooden fence. Definitely a cafe I’d enjoy coming back to.
