Christmas in Cali part 2

One of the great things we did while we were in California was take a day trip out to Monterrey. Oh, lovely ocean! It was great. I was brave enough to do cross some water to get out to a small island. At least I did NOT fall into the water, and Doug and his sure-footed siblings (Russell, Amy, Neil, and Hannah) carried Jane on the adventure.
See? Look at that craziness. It was COLD, too.
It is so beautiful. I guess we were actually in Pacific Grove, a place I would love to live. Can you imagine walking out your front door and seeing this? Temperatures between 40 and 70 all YEAR? I think of it as heaven on earth. It's just a little expensive though. And it's in California (no offense, but that's not a smart choice right now).

Jane with Amy and Hannah (it was bright; Amy doesn't just make strange faces).
Jane with Hannah.
Jane pulling Russell's hair.
And Neil with his starfish. It was crazy to see that as a living creature. I think I touched it but didn't hold it; I was too scared it would suck onto me or something.
