We head straight to the creek/swimming hole and slowly walk in for our “showers”, however it’s freezing… like ice cold. It took some courage to dip straight under, but we both did it together and we were out of there within seconds haha, not the best “shower” I’ve ever had, but still refreshing.

This adventure starts in San Francisco: we visit the Zoo and start heading East towards Yosemite. Before leaving SF, we did stop at the beach there to put our feet in the water and carve our initials (JZ˛) into the sand like teenagers. Two oceans down, two more to go! (That newly labeled Southern ocean doesn't count. That's like saying there's only 8 planets or the Earth revolves around the Sun, which is complete ...
