California Central Coast Déjà Vu

I drove down California 1 today from Half Moon Bay to Santa Cruz, and I realized I'd been on this road about 25 years ago, after dropping Claire off at SFO airport for a rafting trip in Idaho.  I stopped off for the night back then at the Pigeon Point Hostel before continuing on down the coast to do some hiking in the Ventana Wilderness.

More Commuting

I took these photographs this morning with my phone and uploaded them to Google+.  So now they're magically in my Picasa album and I can easily post them here.  Haven't quite figured out yet whether I need to cross-post stuff, but this blog is more linear than the G+ stream. (As always, you can click on the picture for a larger version.)

Phone cameras have certainly come a long way.  Compare to the SavaJe phone pictures from a few years ago in this post:

My commuting vehicle. I bought this around when Annie was born, so it's about 20 years old and still going strong.
