Holidays are Over!!!

Jan 9th, 2014 by kris | 1

Is there anything sadder than taking down that fragrant wreath you put up early in December? The boughs that were so brightly lit winding around the banister down the stairs have crumbled. Though the tree in the living room is still brightly lit, and fragrant, it too will come down this week.

Good by till next year.

Now all that sounds rather maudlin. But, January is here in Aptos and Santa Cruz and we have no fog. We have beautiful days and clear nights.

The fun is just beginning.
Who doesn’t love chocolate??? January 19th, the seven year old Chocolate Festival at the Cocoanut Grove features chocolatiers and chocolate artisians including restaurants, bakeries, patisseries, authors and catering companies.

You can go from chocolate in January to Clam Chowder in February. Come the 22nd for the 33rd annual Clam Chowder Cook-Off and Festival.
Ano Nuevo
There is a more than a bit of outdoors if you want to learn all about Elephant Seals at Ano Nuevo. Reservations are required as it is breeding season. Sign up for a guided walk at

We would love to have you visit Sand Rock Farm soon. Like us on Facebook and you are eligible for 25% off on your January or February, 2014 two night stay (except President’s Weekend.)

Looking forward to a visit from you soon.

    Hi your property is beautiful. Hope this finds you having a great day. Please tell me if your property is dog friendly, I have a 25lb 6 year old Welsh Corgi named Happy. He is a well seasoned traveler with me up and down the Coast. Looking forward to your reply, Thank You.
