Snapshots of 100 year old homes in Santa Cruz by Robert Swetz
Robert Vegas Bob Swetz spent the whole day Saturday in Santa Cruz California staying out of the extreme heat in San Jose.
Vegas Bob usually parks away from the crowds up on the bluff of West Cliff Drive and Cowell Street overlooking the bluff to Santa Cruz Pier.
West Cliff Drive is a beautiful area filled with homes that date back 100 years, and as I walked along the roads where I parked my car I snapped a view photos.
This home above is one of my favorites located on Santa Cruz Street and West Cliff Drive.
Here is another beautiful home located just behind the first photo, this home is facing the pacific ocean on West Cliff Drive.
Here is a great photo of the front door entry of a beautiful looking home and the design is very impressive, along with another front door entry of home next to this one.
Robert Swetz spends quite a few weekends playing around Santa Cruz which is only 30 miles from where he is staying in San Jose. Biggest reason would be 15-20 degree cooler temperatures and the beauty of the pacific coast.
As you can see Santa Cruz Beach was packed with families playing along the beach, fishing off the Santa Cruz Pier and playing along the Santa Cruz Boardwalk.
Every Friday from the beginning of June till September musical bands play twice per night on Fridays the it's FREE ... ;o)
