On the west side of Santa Cruz is the lighthouse, now a surfing museum. A large area of
land, called Lighthouse Field, was saved from developers in the late 1970s. In fact, it
was saved from being "developed" as a formal park. Today it serves mainly to
walk dogs in. As I chased my escaped kite string across the ground, I discovered it is
also home to many gophers. At the railing on West Cliff Drive a Japanese tourist caught
the string just before my kite and camera went out to sea!
