California

San Francisco: park walks, large portions of food, climbing that hill.

New Year's Day: recovery through reflection, a view from the Berkeley hills, a dry movie.
Who threw us together?
Before hitting the Bay Area, we spent some time in Big Sur in this mobile Mongolian housing turned into a stationary cliff side Big Sur get away. Pretty amazing space to sleep in, beautiful light coming in through the ceiling.

One of the coolest tree houses/nests ever at the Big Sur yurt hotel.

On the way back home, a stop through Yosemite to romp in the snow under Half Dome.
A mossy icicle snack.

Justin and crow, and a salty tamale lunch in the snow.
Pink apples packed for our lunch, eaten with a tinge of sadness (for the house and family left behind) in the LAX airport.
And then, like nothing we were back. Half of me was so happy to be back, and the other half couldn't help but fixate on where the next place will be, what the next adventures of Kelly and Justin will be...
Oh, but so wonderful to have the first meal back at our favorite organic home style Japanese restaurant. My stomach knows where home is.

Purple sweet potato, carrot salad!
