Dan and I took Arrow on a little jaunt to a lovely spot in Boony Doon after Christmas. We canoed in Elkhorn Slough and saw lots of wildlife...different sea birds, including pelicans, a few sea otters, and harbor seals who followed our canoe.
The weather was drizzly and my foot was hurting, so we mostly relaxed...but we did walk along the Santa Cruz coastline one afternoon.

And I discovered Hart's Fabric, which I heart. So many pretty fabrics, it was difficult to choose.
During the break I also discovered the wonder that is no knead bread. Much as been blogged about this bread, so I had high hopes...and yet, I was not disappointed. I made the almost no knead bread from Cooks Illustrated.
I made this!
It was delicious...oh, the crust! Mmm...I will be making this bread many more times. Might just start one tonight, I think.
Happy new year!
