Christmas in California

This year, for Christmas break, Erin and I decided to drive to California (rather than flying).  We wanted to introduce Naga to the beach and to my parents new puppy, Trixie.

We split the driving up over two and a half days, avoiding a snow storm in the Rockies by leaving earlier than planned on Saturday.  We stayed in Grand Junction, CO, St. George, UT, and Bakersfield, CA on our way out.  While in Bakersfield we were able to have breakfast with my friend Joe.

Before heading out to the beach we stopped in Paso Robles to do some wine tasting and have some lunch.  Naga really enjoyed splashing around in the surf once she got used to the waves.  We also got a chance to have lunch on the harbor at Morro Bay and go for a hike at Irish Hills National Reserve.

In Tulare it was great to spend Christmas with my family.  It would have been nice to spend more time with them, but we had to get back on the road to head back to Colorado.  It ended up being a lot of time on the road.  It was a scenic drive, but maybe next time we'll just fly.
