Santa Cruz yesterday.

Hi,

We had the day off yesterday so an outing to Santa Cruz was in order. It was gorgeous! We even spotted an otter playing in Monterrey Bay. Before the pandemic, I always took the Bay Area’s proximity to beaches for granted. Now I’m really grateful that I can see the water within an hour’s drive. When I first moved to the Bay Area, I had this idea of trying to visit every nearby beach up and down the cost. I may resurrect that project this summer and fall.

I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend and get a chance to go outside!

My iMac that Google was generous enough to send to my home for WFH. My desk is no longer this clean.

Happy Memorial Day!
