As promised, we're coming to you live from (very) sunny and warm California! We spent most of the day in Carmel today, visiting the Mission there. We then headed down very steep Ocean Avenue to Carmel Beach. The two little girls to the left of the signs were rolling down the hill and giggling the whole time, there were a group of dogs playing fetch in the water and rolling around on the sand, and the sun was out in full force while a nice breeze off the water kept us from overheating. After such a long winter, sunshine like we had today feels like it's healing your body. You can almost forget about all the snow and bitter cold. Boston, you'd better be nice and sunny for us when we get back!
