I made it from Berkeley to Santa Cruz in time for Friday night on Pacific Avenue. Surprisingly cold, I ducked into a store to buy a warmer top and emerged to hear familiar music. I walked down the block toward it and sure enough, it was Kazunga–my favorite marimba booth, still going strong fourteen years after my move from the Santa Cruz area to Mexico.
I stood quietly in the crowd and when I stepped closer to take a picture, needless to say, my friend Robin was astonished to see me!
This “statue” was a new addition to Pacific Avenue.
Nice taste in shoes…
He was glad to see me as well–especially the bill I put in his collection cup. A nice tune followed. Even his accordion was well-dressed.
The Tannery art studios were having their usual “First Friday” Open Studios.
These young ladies took time out from observing art for a bit of social media activity.
Wonderful to be back in Santa Cruz with all its street activity, great restaurants and old friends. It’s going to be a busy week.
