How to Peel a Mango
Step 1. Remove the peel
Step 2. Chop off the stem.
Step 3. Stand the mango up on the flat end you created by removing the stem.
Step 4. Slice away the flesh, being careful to not slice into the core. If you feel resistance or hear a crunching sound you're cutting into the core.
Note: parrot may regard mango with suspicion.

We got some loot at the Bay Tree Bookstore before heading down towards the beach.
Of course we had to go to the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk! Who could resist carnival food and rides?
I went on the Merry-Go-Round....
And the Ferris Wheel.....
And the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster (Built in 1924!)
And I played the squirt gun game, and of course won!
Then it was back to the pool again. The whole gang showed up for dinner....
Dad's famous homemade pizzas! Yum!
Then we hightailed it back to the swimming pool where we splashed around, layed in the sun....

Oh well, we amused our selves with cross stitch and Rob's card tricks, oh and of course, naps! The flights were on time in fact I think we even got in a little early. My sis and her man picked us up and we went directly to In and Out Burger. Can't come to CA without stopping there huh? Then is was out to "the crick" to jump in the pool! Dinner was ham, scalloped potatoes (both done on the grill) and salads. My mom makes the best salads!
The next day we were off to San Francisco. We saw great and amazing stuff starting with lunch at Boudin's Cafe with their famous sourdough bread. Then to the Musee Mechanque to play mechanical games, take photo booth pictures and make lots of squished pennies. Then we walked over to Pier 39 and first visited the sea lions, they rock! We then strolled through the tons of tourist trap shops and bought souveniers and jewlery, yay! Afterwards we hit the Aquarium of the Bay and all sported their lovely "Save The Bay" crowns as we wandered the exhibits (pictured above). We walked through the giant tank tubes seeing all sorts of bay and sea animal life. We were able to pet some sharks too. We then headed out to Crissy Fields, a beach near the Golden Gate Bridge, saw Haight & Ashbury and headed out to dinner at the Spaghetti Shack (apparently featured on one of Rachel Ray's shows).
