Tinks Tour

Tinks from Oz, stopped in for a few days on her way back to Sydney from being in Europe. It was her first time in the US, so I showed her around a bit. Straight off the plane we stopped in Half Moon Bay for a bite. And Bonny Doon winery for a quick taste. The wind was good for Funston the next day, so back up to the city we went. Only the city lived up to its reputation of being foggy and cold in the summer. We couldn't even see Golden Gate Bridge. So we settled for a Westlake tour toward Pacifica, it was my first tandem at Funston. I wasn't sure if the glider had enough performance to make the 3mile trip back to launch in the north wind. It was tight. Of course not making it back would only have meant walking the trail back up, but thats not the point :)
Next up my favorite ride/walk up to Berry Creek falls. From the coast, through marshland, into woodland, following the creek into a redwood canyon. Tinks tore it up ! I had promised Sea Otters and here they were, bashing open and munching on oysters. Back into Santa Cruz Harbor. There was one afternoon left for tourist time. Fortunately the sun was out this time.
