Elfin Lakes

An amazingly warm and sunny weekend in October provided the perfect reason for a last trip to the coast mountains before the real snow arrives. We headed up to Elfin Lakes on the Saturday morning – lots of snow at the campground and we were not the only people with the idea of camping at Elfin. We were the only ones to hike up to the Gargoyles on Saturday morning – we were rewarded with great views of Diamond Head.

Two trips to the UK

We made two trips back to the UK in April and June – the first for Andy to run the London Marathon and the second to celebrate Gill’s 40th birthday and Gill’s dad’s 70th birthday. Plus we went to the Best Kept Secret festival to see Radiohead and Arcade Fire!
