Google Tour


Google: Android Building

A nice thing about living in Silicon Valley is that all the major tech companies are here. Yesterday I had the opportunity to go to Google Headquarters aka Googleplex with Kaylie’s Girl Scout Troop.

I brought my Olympus PEN but wasn’t sure if I was allowed to take pictures inside the buildings so I didn’t. We went on a short tour; learned a little bit about Google; how they use renewable energy; what the Engineer giving us the tour does and the story behind the Android OS confectionery-themed code names. I was hoping we would go to the store but we didn’t.

Felton & Santa Cruz


Our other day trip during Spring Break was to Santa Cruz. On the way there we stopped and had lunch at Scotts Valley Market then we went to Felton Covered Bridge and Horse Sense. When you walk through the covered bridge the entrance to Horse Sense is only a few yards away. The girls really enjoyed seeing all the horses. There is also a park right before the bridge where they had fun playing before we finally headed off to Santa Cruz.

When we got to Santa Cruz we went to the Wharf. My camera died about 10 minutes in because I didn’t charge it after our San Francisco trip. Luckily I brought my point & shoot camera just in case. The girls had fun on the beach splashing in the ocean and playing in the sand. Afterwards we walked the Wharf, had dinner at Woodies Cafe & of course bought candy at Marini’s Candies before heading home for the day.
