Go on the rollercoaster, of course!
I stopped off to spend some time with my sister Theresa LaQuey (of Steampunk pattern fame) after attending the American Sewing Guild conference last week and we went to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and rode the Giant Dipper ... FUN!
The photos they sell are taken at the bottom of the first BIG drop. I was holding on for dear life. Theresa was hanging on to her purse!
The Giant Dipper is one of those old all wooden rollercoasters that rattle. On February 27, 1987, the United States National Park Service recognized the Giant Dipper as a National Historic Landmark.
