Marin Shenanigans

Yikes, the new job has certainly been keeping me busy, which has meant little time for uploads.. but, never fear.. my camera (phone) is always close by. As of next weekend, I'll have my friend Nikon by my side again, which means - stay tuned for some nice pics of this STUNNING countryside!

Spring is still a little bit alive in Marin County!

Alpie just loves our daily walks in the open space areas:

new climate ~ new job ~ new culture : new home

Alps and I said our farewells to our island, which has been our home for the last (almost) 5 years. Goodbye to the humidity, to the abundance of mangoes, to the warm, clear waters of the Caribbean and most sadly of all, Geoff - and boarded the plane to a new adventure and our new home - San Francisco, California.
Nikon was left behind, so you'll all be getting pics from my phone - but I think any device couldve captured that smile on Alpie's face!

Last beach day with the kidlets!

Going to really miss my Applebabies (three shown, the fourth was probably hanging off Geoff at the time).

Between the beach volley ball and horseshoe games, cupcakes and wine, yoga-retreat planning, Vegas trip planning, a charcoal-covered dog (yes Alpie got into it good), a buffet worth of snacks and lots of laughter, I had a wonderful last farewell beach day with all of my closest friends.
