Catalina Channel Swim

This is just amazing!!! One of our friends, Hana Gosney, is attempting to swim from Catalina Island to Rancho Palos Verdes this Sunday September 4th, 2016. Hana is making the swim to raise money and awareness for the fight against internal melanoma cancer. The swim is over 20 miles (part at night) and she is doing it without a wet suit or swim fins but with a support boat and team. She is scheduled to swim up at Pelican Cove in Rancho Palos Verdes sometime Sunday afternoon. I’m hoping to be there when she completes her swim challenge. Best of luck Hana….all of us that gather here at HQ are behind you 100%

If you want to donate to her swim, check this link out please https://www.gofundme.com/t6wfus

Yurting at Lake Cachuma! We spent Valentines weekend exploring.


Blue Jay Hand

This Blue Jay flew into our Yurt several times with no fear. It landed on the bunk bed and did a fighter pilot dive bomb into Costa’s dog food. As we were packing up the bird knew and came back to say good bye.

The heat wave this February has provided us with beach days, amazing sunsets and stunning sunrises. The image below is today’s sunrise over Newport Beach with just a hint of off-shore winds.

Our marriage day movie. Shot and produced by Mr. Jack Coleman, all on Super 8 film. I’m so fortunate that he was able to capture this day and make such a great film.

I got married to my beautiful bride Annika back on August 29th in the city of Cayucos. It was an amazing day spent with many friends and family.


Sand Castle

Posted: 08/24/2015 by goodie in art, Goodie

Dog days of summer equal beach time fun and sand castle making. Of course I took it one step further and made a custom 30 gallon trash can mold to begin my sand castle. After one day the wind got to it and turned it into mother natures masterpiece.

Here is another vintage Newport Beach image from my collection. It features what appears to be the American Legion’s boat-car and most likely dates back to the earlier days of the Legion in the mid 30’s to 40’s. I wish I had this vehicle to cruise around in for the 4th of July this weekend. Wonder if this vehicle/boat still exists to this day?
