Road Trip pt. 2 – Daytrip to Santa Cruz, UCSC, McHenry Library & Lunch at the Seabright Brewery

Friday: Daytrip to Santa Cruz!

I was hoping to get an early start and then spend the day in Santa Cruz, but we were delayed and didn’t get going until almost noon. Ann drove us over Highway 17, through the Santa Cruz mountains and up to the University of California, Santa Cruz campus and McHenry Library. Our destination, the Grateful Dead Special Collection.

UC Santa Cruz’s McHenry Library is the home of the Grateful Dead Special Collection. The current exhibit is the “Words of the Grateful Dead”. You’re not supposed to take pictures, but here’s one of the exhibit hall showcasing many literary works. The archive is available online.

The Grateful Dead Archive Online (GDAO) is a socially constructed collection comprised of over 45,000 digitized items drawn from the UCSC Library’s extensive Grateful Dead Archive (GDA) and from digital content submitted by the community and global network of Grateful Dead fans. The Grateful Dead Archive Onlinewww.gdao.org

We toured the rest of the library, wandered around for awhile, and then drove around the campus.

We were hungry and drove through Santa Cruz to the Seabright Brewery in Capitola by the Sea. When we got there, the national league playoff game was on the TV. So, we enjoyed our lunch with a room full of happy San Francisco Giants fans.

UPDATED March 2, 2017
Our good friend Ann O’Reilly (nee Collins) passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on February 22, 2017. Our thoughts are with her family and friends who loved her. We are shocked and saddened by her death and really can’t adequately express our feelings here.

REST IN PEACE ANNIE – May the Four Winds blow her safely home!
