Half Moon Bay
We just got back from an overlapping work trip -- Carrie was in San Jose for BlogHer (as was Skye), and I was in Cupertino catching up on some long overdue meetings. Then we both kicked around for the weekend in sunny CA and met up with folks, including Nigel (who was also in town on work!) and large chunks of my family who drove down from Sacramento and met us in Oakland.
Before finally heading for the airport, we did sneak off to see the ocean, at bee-yoo-tiful Half Moon Bay. I finally indulged myself and picked up a Canon SD700 IS ELPH for the occasion; I love my SLR, but it's bulky enough that I don't want to take it for casual photography. So, after two years of pining, we decided it counted as a birthday present :). It's ideal for casual photography -- I couldn't be happier.
