Thanks for the recommendations! We will be sure to follow up on them when we do our next walk, from the Santa Cruz boardwalk in the southward direction. After finishing our packed lunches, I… er… filled up on chocolate covered graham crackers so wasn’t hungry when we hit Santa Cruz this time around
The walk coincided with a beautiful day, and we got to see more brussels sprouts than you can imagine, as well as artichokes and green onions here and there. The only food for sale that we encountered before hitting a fully urban area, well before Picnic Basket, was Steamer Lane Supply at Lighthouse Field. I snapped the above photo, and was tempted to grab a Marianne’s ice cream bar from a display case. I found a description in the Santa Cruz Sentinel and review of their pre-brick and mortar operation.
On the drive back to SF, we stopped at Swanton Berry Farm and then had an early dinner at The Barn in Half Moon Bay. I’ll post about those in another thread.
