I visited the Bay Area for the first time recently with my friends Vince and Calvin.
Calvin is a reporter for the Santa Cruz Sentinel. He often tweets (@CalvinMenAtWork) about news in Santa Cruz. Since he covers the court system and breaking news, his tweets had led me to believe that Santa Cruz was full of murderers and arsonists.
I was surprised to discover a pleasant surf town with great beaches and panoramic views of the ocean. We visited in October—apparently not the season for surfing—so it served as a quiet refuge from our busy big city lives.
We did, of course, visit the big city as well.
