No one knew what the day had in store for them as they rushed to the studio at 8:00 in the morning. The day started off slow, as people took their time coming to the studio. However, once as everyone reached the Roaring Train Railroad, the excitement began to build and the occasion took a fortunate twist for the better.

The train left the platform, and the trip officially began. Right off the bat, everyone’s spirits were heightened by the beauty of the redwood forests. Allies, parents, and kids all embraced the sunny weather and cool air, relaxing during the journey. The positive energy in the atmosphere was apparent on the children’s faces as the train made its way towards the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

When we arrived, everyone was eager to feel the deep blue waters and play in the crashing waves. The kids’ faces lit up as we walked on the warm sand towards the endless ocean. The beach was a perfect location for the excursion because despite age and ability, it was a place that everyone could enjoy. Many members of the Pragnya family were able to play around in the ocean and nearby lagoon. The kids got to hang out with their allies and take advantage of the beautiful summer day.
