One part of the Stanford Campus from the Hoover Tower... the campus was huge (I think around 800 acres!)
I just got back  from my trip to San Francisco/ Palo Alto/ Stanford/ Monterey Bay.... It was so much fun but also a lot of work: we had class sessions from early morning to late evening everyday, including weekends, for two weeks straight! When I got home, I think I sleep for a straight day and a half :P. Anyway, I'm off to Turkey today... I'll see you guys in two weeks!

San Francisco from around Pier 1... it was so pretty and SO FUN!
The Alaskans we were with insisted that we get some oysters from Hog Island Oyster Company

I insisted I get some clam linguine... this is from the Stinking Rose and is made using black linguine noodles (made with squid ink); it was really good!
Kayaking Elk Horn Slough... It was the first time I've ever seen otters!
Monterey Bay Aquarium... one of the best places I visited!
A cow fish!

I looked at the jellyfish for hours... they were by far my favorite part of the aquarium!
A fancy seahorse/ seadragaon! The Seahorse exhibit was my second favorite part of the trip to the Aquarium.
An area just outside the aquarium... this reminded me of the tidepools at home and I almost wanted to go swimming except that I remembered that the water was super freezing!
Also a highlight... We got to play with horses!  They can sense your feelings and so as a leadership and team-building exercise we worked with them as a group... so nice!

shop in vacation mode


I put my shop in vacation mode from October 14 to November 14, 2012 (there wasn't that much in it anyway) because I'll be going to Stanford University Palo Alto as part of a fellowship... I'm super nervous but excited too!  I'll be there for two weeks and participating in a special set of classes with my fellowship cohort, some of whom are coming from New Zealand and Alaska (but most of us are from Hawaii).

After that I'll be going to Turkey for a vacation... I'm super excited :)

I redid my blog, just in time for Halloween!  It's based off of one of my old calendars (I really hope I can get back into that next year!)  Let me know if you prefer the two column or three column blog... Thanks!
