Fog/Sun ~ Taprock ~ Sami's Gymnastics Competition ~ NFL Divisional Playoffs

Good 27º foggy morning. ICK!!!! COME ON SUN!!!!!

Yesterday we warmed to 52º and the sun actually came out!

Early I met Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami, and Jean at Taprock

for brunch and for our Christmas gift exchange! I had my "usual", the vegetarian omelette. So good.
... fresh spinach, Swiss cheese, zucchini, cremini mushrooms, tomato, garlic, onions, and topped with Hollandaise sauce. Served with either hash browns or fruit and one of their awesome blueberry muffins! Jean had one too and B,J,T,&S had the buffet.

Then I came home to work on the gymnastics photos from Saturday....
