Out Playing Pinball
This evening I returned from a trip being out and about while dressed as Nadine for the past four days. Jules and I traveled around Cali going to a variety of places. Last night we found ourselves in Santa Cruz.
We pulled in at about four o'clock and were happy to check in and get out of the car. We ended up hanging out in the hotel for a few hours. We weren't really planning on going to the coast and so we didn't have a large variety of warm clothes to wear, but I was happy with what I decided to wear.
The real highlight of this evening though was twofold. One was being out among the huge crowd of people down on the boardwalk. It happened to be that Santa Cruz shows movies on the beach on Wednesday nights, so the place was extra full. We didn't really have any plans for dinner so we decided to just walk along and eat whatever piqued our interest. Needless to say we ended up eating some overpriced fair like food. But the crowds were huge! There were so many people walking along out there. It was quite fun! I generally don't like crowds, along with Jules, but while being dressed it was quite enjoyable.
Normally while being out and about I try my best to just do me and not even look at people. Last night though I was totally watching as many people as I could look at. I tell you what, down in Santa Cruz, out of the thousands of people we encountered, I got about 2 or 3 stares. And that was about it. Other than that we encountered plenty of very polite and nice people.
The second highlight of the night was playing video games, skee-ball, and pinball while dressed as Nadine. I am pretty sure I have never done that before. I even got to play my favorite game, Galaga! I really had a very fun time.
It was very enjoyable returning to a place that Jules and I had spent quite a bit of time as teens when we were first dating.
I have been a little behind in postings and updates but I will try and get to that tomorrow.
