Spent Christmas with Steve's family, in San Diego
in a condo on the Pacific Ocean.
Saw some awesome U.S. Navy ships (aircraft carriers, cruisers, and more)
Found some Chumash cave paintings north of Santa Barbara
Celebrated New Years with a bang in San Francisco.
The sea of humanity was larger than we have ever experienced and have a better appreciation how close crowds can come to a stampede.
On New Years day we attempted to hike to the top of Mission Peak in Fremont,
but due to a late start and concerns of being trapped on the trail after dark, we turned around a mile from the top.
Today we hiked to Little Yosemite just outside of Fremont.
No rattlesnakes were spotted, which Colleen finds disappointing as she'd really like to see one (from a safe distance of course)
We had some unexpected changes in 2013 like Steve starting his new job in San Francisco, moving to Fremont, climbing [a freaking] mountain, seal rescues and elephant seals.
2014 is looking promising: new adventures (Bolivia to visit Karen), privacy (we finally live without housemates!), and [insert unexpected random misadventure here].
