As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, Joel and I love going for scenic drives. It’s our favorite way to pass the time.
But first, we needed to stop for root beer floats from The Penny Ice Creamery here in Santa Cruz. They make the best ice cream in the area—from scratch! They always offer unique flavors and fun toppings, like marshmallow fluff. If you’re ever in Santa Cruz, make sure to stop by.
Once we got our sweet tooth fix, we started to work our way through the Santa Cruz Mountains. We decided to pull over at the top just as the sun was beginning to fall.
There is something so peaceful and serene about driving on the backroads. It makes the rush of everyday life feel a little less urgent.
My go-to outfit during the summer months is a pretty blouse, cropped high-waisted jeans, and a comfortable heel. I bought this top at Nordstrom a few years ago, but here are a couple of similar styles they have in stock now:
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
