New year, finally a new post. My apologies for the extended absence; it was a busy fall semester with no photos, no baking, and no time for the blog. However I hope to be back with more content in the coming months, so stay in touch.
Over the winter break, my basketball team played in a tournament in Santa Cruz, California. The trip included a practice at Stanford, a Segway tour of San Francisco, a walk through the redwoods, and a win over the Banana Slugs. The boardwalk at Santa Cruz offered some beautiful shots of the Pacific and its inhabitants: the sea lions and the surfers. I loved getting to experience the sea lions up close and in action while they basked away in laziness interrupted by loud barks of aggression when a newcomer intruded on the cuddle pile. To be surrounded by sea breeze and a little bit of sunshine refreshed me. It felt good to have the camera strap around my neck again.
