We said farewell to summer at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. The hour and a half drive was a nice escape from the Bay Area fog as we were greeted with 75-degree weather and the warm sandy beach.
The boardwalk reminded me of a smaller Atlantic City, although the seagulls were nicer and less aggressive. Yes, the same amount of funnel cakes and ice cream vendors. It was very nostalgic of my childhood summers spent at the shore in Jersey (please refrain from sending me any Jersey Shore jokes).
This week, I am exhausted.
I am exhausted because this country was struck with 2 mass shootings in one day.
This blog post isn’t about my urgent request for gun control or my frustration with the President. This blog post is merely expressing my exhaustion.
I need to take one deep breath of relief.
I hope everyone is taking care of themselves.
