Laguna Beach sunset

Laguna Beach sunset

Last Sunday we drove to Orange County to visit with my friend Aminah, who has moved to Laguna Beach for a few months. Dave took some photos of the sun setting behind Catalina; check them out here.

Flat Stanley’s Visit

Flat Stanley at the San Diego ZooLast weekend we had the privilege of hosting a very distinguished guest named Flat Stanley. He was the emissary of a class in Hyde Park, NY. We were hoping to take him to the beach and give him a tour of San Diego, but unfortunately he had to head to Virginia shortly. So instead we took him to the San Diego Zoo.

Settling In

Since we have so much free time now that we’ve moved away from all our commitments in Boston, we decided to go to the beach last night after work. It was so great to just sit there in the sand and hang out. It’s like some of the places I used to go on vacation. The feeling is awesome when I suddenly realize that we’re not on vacation. We live here! I’m looking forward to just being here for a while and getting used to that. Check out the pictures that Dave took of the sun setting at the beach.
