We’ve been doing lots of fun stuff. I’ve just been bad about blogging, but I am going to start writing at least once a week, so keep on reading.
One of the most amazing things about living in this area is that you can be in the mountains, at the beach, or in the desert in two hours from here. We took a camping trip to Anzo Borego with some friends last weekend that was a lot of fun.
We got stopped by border patrol on our way in to the park, and they asked all of us where we were from. One of our friends who is Isreali totally confused the agents who almost certainly haven’t heard any other answer to that question except “Mexican” or “American”. It was pretty funny. You could almost see the “does not compute” sign blinking over their heads.
We took a magical hike through the desert that dead-ended into an oasis of palm trees in the middle of nowhere. On the way back, we managed to get lost in the desert at dusk, which was pretty scary but a little fun too. Mike and Dror, the Isreali, ran ahead to find the campsite before dark and us ladies stayed back with the pups, who were exhausted. Once they found the site Dror said, “Oh, they’ll come here eventually, don’t you think?” and Mike looked at him and said, “I’m not leaving my wife in the middle of the desert,” and then he just turned around and headed back into the desert to find us and Dror followed. What a good, good Man I have.
Here are a couple of photos:
