Last weekend we took a short trip to see my new niece (who lives new San Jose). We happened upon a lovely bit of winter weather (+26 one day) so we had two lovely days near the ocean.
We also had a chance to be on the water in kayaks. The surf was a bit rough at Monterey the day were were there and Jenn and I managed to dump as we were riding the surf into the beach.
The gardening season (which never really quits there) is rather further along than here.
There were a number of flowers.
And everyone in my brother's neighbourhood appears to have a fruit tree (oranges and lemons being the most common) in the front yard. Time to stop complaining and get my poop in a pile to start growing some seedlings.
