Meanwhile in Santa Cruz…

Layla continues to practice her graffiti writing and exploring legal places to paint. After Venice Beach and Sunken City in San Pedro, she’s now headed off to Santa Cruz. About 20 miles out of Santa Cruz, in Davenport, she found Davenport Ditch, a great place to practice, meet peeps, and learn stuff:
