What with Emma coming to visit from the UK, the end of February was more of a chance to see bits of California than I’ve had so far, if only because there was someone else to share it with.
The weekend that she landed we took it fairly easy, wandering out to the coast for a couple of days (including a visit to the lovely town of Monterey). Mid-week, I had to work (one of the downsides of life stateside: holiday entitlements are somewhat limited), and then I had Thursday and Friday off, giving us 4 days before she flew out again.
We decided to visit Yosemite National Park pretty much on a whim, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made since I got here.
Whatever limited things I can say here, I doubt I can do the place justice – the photos are always going to do a better job.
So instead, here are a few random disconnected notes on the place.
