Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to our readers! 

It's been fun sharing our adventures on the road with you over the past five plus years! We love it when we learn that our blog has inspired others to visit a particular place. We love that this space has connected us to many other folks throughout our travels. We hope you keep reading along with us in 2018!

We are well into our 2.5 month stay in San Diego. It's been jam packed with meet ups with family and friends, both old and new. After our first month at Mission Bay, we've spent the last couple of weeks at our sweet moochdocking spot at Hans' brothers in Poway. This week we'll head back down to Mission Bay for another month.

Instead of nitty gritty details, I'm just going to let a few pretty pictures tell a little bit of the story of the past few weeks...

While staying at Mission Bay there are always lots of walks on the beach.

If we're lucky there are minus tides during daylight hours...
we saw dozens of sea hares at the north end of Pacific Beach at one low tide.

Sunsets at the beach can be sublime.

When we move to Poway we focus our outings on north east San Diego county.

A pretty pond at Daley Ranch...many of the ponds have dried up thanks to the lack of rain.

 On Christmas day we spent the morning at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Endangered rhinos roam the large African Plains enclosure.

Pretty kitty.

Lovely lemur.

 A spate of warm December days had us making tracks into the local mountains for a hike in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park.

Enormous old oak towers over Hans.

The best way to welcome in the new year is a hike on New Years Day!

Wishing you all a healthy and joyful year ahead!
