Everybody loves a circus.  Especially if it’s on the shores of beachland  in Santa Cruz, California.  The Polynesian circus has set up shop on the  historic beach boardwalk, and I went to go see the free 30 minute show  yesterday.  There was plenty of dancing girls, gymnasts, fire spinners,  shell blowers, the limbo man, and real honest to God Samoans in the  show.  It’s a fun event to go to if you’re around Santa Cruz through August.
