After an Easter egg hunt and a brunch of french toast, chicken sausage and fruit salad, Daniel, Joanna, Morgan and myself headed out for an early-afternoon hike.
We forded a creek, crashed through blackberry brambles, poison oak and tangles of underbrush and finally arrived on some beautifully hilly property with some fairly spectacular views.
Morgan and Joanna inspected the flora.
There were century plants that looked like something out of Dr. Seuss. And lots of beautiful flowers.
We found a good perch and shared a bottle of wine.
It was something of an adventure and even though we all had to bathe ourselves in Tecnu when we got back to the house, we'd worked up hearty appetites for the Easter feast at Daniel's parents' house.
