Dear Claaa-aude ... 

Wednesday, Sep 8 2010
We've got a soft spot for albino alligators. We're not alone: Everyone in the Bay Area is half in love with Claude, the iconic superstar at the science museum. He's just so ... weird and elegant and 181 pounds. At Claude the Albino Alligator's 15th Birthday, the focus is on kids who share Claude's birthday -- they will be invited to help sing Happy Birthday, and to decorate the gator-chow "cakes" he'll be ferociously devouring. Human-chow cake is on hand as well, in addition to alligator crafts and the chance to ogle Claude in all his glory.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
