There’s more whales in the Monterey Bay this season than we can remember! Come out to Sand Rock Farm and take an ocean adventure with Sanctuary Cruises.
What happened to winter? Our needed rainy season in Santa Cruz came and went and we got only 65% of a normal rainfall! A bit of rain last night and April 1st dawned bright and sunny with the 70 year old pink dogwood in full bloom and the lilacs sending their scents through Sand Rock Farm’s Spiral Garden.
Bed and Breakfast Guests and potential wedding couples are out exploring the grounds this morning discovering awakening bloom everywhere from the Japanese maples and azaleas in the shade garden to the blooming Iris and bird house waiting for a nest to be built.
One guest just told me he hiked to the top of the property following an old bridal path over a mile. I didn’t know it was still there.
Don’t miss Spring. Visit Santa Cruz and Sand Rock Farm in April. You can ride the steam engine to Roaring Camp and enjoy the Eggstraordinary Egg Hunt on Bear Mountain, APRIL 7 & 8. Eggstraordinary Egg Hunt visit web site | more info
