Well, we just returned to our desert wasteland/home from being fully submerged in greenery for a week. Needless to say, it's a dramatic change and we all prefer the greenery. We first traveled to Santa Margarita for a couple of days to stay at a KOA campground. During our stay there we had some pretty heavy rains so we weren't able to enjoy the scenery as much as we had hoped but we still managed to squeeze in one extremely muddy hike before leaving. After Santa Margarita we spent our time between Atascadero and San Luis Obispo visiting Nick's grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. Nick's cousin Brandee was nice enough to let us stay with her in Atascadero. While we were there we fell in love with the area all over again which confirmed our decision to relocate to the Central Coast after this enlistment. We can hardly wait and 2 years suddenly seems like a lifetime.
