Summer Fun

Crow's Nest

Collette, Toran, Aurelia, Jonathon & I spent a day in Santa Cruz recently. Jonathon, having lived in Santa Cruz, remembered the Crow's Nest fondly, so we went there for dinner. We had a stunning beach side view on the deck, while being protected with high class walls.

Clam Chowder

Toran & I started out with a nice cup of clam chowder. It could have used a tad more salt, but was tasty nevertheless.

Half a kid's fish & chips

Collette & Aurelia split a kids fish & chips and seemed to enjoy it.

Yellow tail special

Jonathon, without further ado, went directly for the yellowtail special. He said the fish was great!

Kid's salad

Next arrived Toran's salad completing his kids soup & salad set.

Sesame Ahi Salad

And I was simply bowled over by my sesame ahi salad. What's not to like about that beautiful bowl of greens with broccoli, rice noodles, fresh ginger, almonds and seared ahi sprinkled with sesame seeds? And the flower garnish was lovely too. I assure you, it tasted as good as it looks.

Ice cream

Strawberry ice cream was a hit with the under 12 set.

Key Lime Mango Pie

Jonathon & I found the key lime pie with a hint of mango irresistable. It was good, and could used a bit more mango.

Santa Cruz beach

The beach was extraordinary.

Collette, Aurelia, Toran & Jonathon

And the company couldn't have been better.
