On Boxing Day (that's the day after Christmas for the American's amongst you) we hiked in yet another park that is only a 10 minute drive from our house. The park itself was really nice. Rolling wide open fields that made it feel like Yorkshire without the stone walls. Great views of the reservoir and valley. We saw more cows than people..
It really made us think how lucky we are to live so close to so many great places to hike!

This is one of those hikes that you spend the first half hour walking uphill at various angles, from meandering to steep. We were going out to brunch, (or more like afternoon tea),to celebrate a friend's birthday at the Marriott Hotel in Half Moon Bay. Therefore we had to do quick 3.5 mile hike. It was however lovely and quiet. It had rained a few weeks before, so the moss on the trees was beautiful..

After my normal CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm finished their season at Thanksgiving, I decided to try a different version of the same principal. This time, we chose from a menu of options. The biggest advantage being no more veggies you don't really want, and the quality was really good too :-) http://eatwiththeseasons.com
