This weeks Sunday Scribblings is Eccentricity. The very first thing that came to mind is the pink lady in Santa Cruz. She/He? walks up and down the main drag everyday. Then as I was looking for photos of the Pink Lady I found all sorts of other eccentric Santa Cruz photos. Here are some highlights of my new town.
This is the pink (it looks like a guy, doesn't it?) This person roams around the Mall area and it seems as if he is well known by the locals.
More pink things in Santa Cruz. Do you see her hair? And the surfboard too?
Not pink, but equally colorful. These are street performers. I never saw performers like this on Venice Beach or Santa Monica 3rd Street. Santa Cruz is going to be an interesting place to live. Visit this photo here.
Another street performer. A little research shows that this guy used to be a stockbroker. Visit the flickr shot here.
This next pic is rather funny but I have to give you the link to it. Its here
As I look through these photos I am coming across so many beautiful photos. No wonder Santa Cruz is called paradise.
This is what I cannot wait for, I think my soul is going to do a bit of healing in Santa Cruz. In the Antelope Valley, where I grew up and still live, gets on average 7 inches a year according to weather people. Having lived here my whole life I would say that the calculations are off. And we have been in a drought since the 80s when it used to snow here regularly every winter. This year we had half an inch of rain and it hasnt snowed more then a dusting of powder in over 5 years. Santa Cruz gets 30 inches of rain a year and even this year with severe drought in Ca they still got 15 inches! Look at these
I guess thats enough photos for one day. Can you tell I can hardly think of anything else? Well thats not exactly true... I have nothing to do but sew all day so I have gotten a lot done, including the little pillowcase dress I was planning. Here is a sneak peak.
I also found some more great pillowcases and tea napkins yesterday. I am going to post tomorrow or maybe later tonight. I am going to my mothers to clean all my stuff out of the garage. Keep or Dump day, we will see what I find shopping in my mothers garage (by the way, she has a 3 car garage stuffed to the breaking point, its going to be a long day, can we say garage sale?)
