Lately, Life, Santa Cruz

Living in Central Cal

Now that we’ve been here a few weeks, I’ve quickly adapted to life living on the central coast, where there is weather, trees and endless ocean air.

Here are just a few things I’ve recently learned:

  • When taking clothes out of the closet, shake violently in case of spiders. This also applies to shoes, sheets, blankets, and towels.
  • At stop signs it helps to signal.
  • When reversing, you should always look behind you.
  • With the rain come ants.
  • Just because it’s sunny doesn’t mean it’s warm.
  • Always wear a beanie when running on the beach, or your ears will freeze off.
  • If it smells like skunk in the house, it’s just Tacoma.
  • When in doubt, leave the insect alone.
  • Stop and smell the roses, literally.
  • Toms and sandals are not good shoes to wear in the rain.
  • If you leave your sun roof open in your car, a raccoon WILL hang out in your car all night.
  • The beach is amazing, but not when you have to constantly sweep it up in your house.
  • The farmer’s market might be my favorite part of the weekend.
  • And last but not least, breathing in the ocean air every day really does make you happier. And I’m convinced that’s why everyone here are so incredibly friendly – because they’re all very happy!

Happy weekend!
