A few weekends ago we attended an amazing 1920’s themed wedding at the Catalina Island Casino. It was a very special day in an amazing and historical location! Congrats Heather and Chris!

I worked up in the Central Valley this week and stayed in the small town of Three Rivers near Sequoia. Amazing little spot!

I was on the Central Coast this week for work and stayed overnight at Pismo Beach. Just after sunset, I noticed a guy walking his three leashed goats on the beach.

I have put over 4000 miles on the vehicle in the last month. I spent some time in Arizona recently in the town of Fountain Hills. Took a sunset hike to a ridge that overlooks the town and the world’s 4th tallest fountain.

I was traveling the Central Coast this week for work and stayed over night in Pismo Beach. Took a early evening walk down to the beach and watched the whales that were fishing off the Pismo Pier.

I have been so busy over the last few weeks so sorry for the lack of posts. I was in Bullhead City last week and had a great marketing trip.

Spent the night in Santa Barbara for work this week and woke up to a beautiful morning. I walked out to the sand spit and found a few Geocaches along the way.

I spent the weekend camping in Newberry Springs at the Sand Box. The group had a great time exploring the Mojave Desert including amazing Afton Canyon, AKA the Grand Canyon of the Mojave.

Pictures don’t do this place justice!

The Mojave River usually flows below ground, however in Afton Canyon there are several areas where it flows above ground

I stayed at an interesting property last weekend. Near Barstow, the eclectic ranch includes rail road cars, antiques, guitar shaped lake with a giant water slide, crashed plane, rock house and other random acts of art! Really cool and a fun experience. I want to go back!

Central Coast Trip

Posted: 10/30/2012 by goodie in travel

Over 10 days since my last post, I apologize. I have been van camping up the Central Coast and we had an amazing time. We kicked it off with a night at Refugio State Beach where we kayaked and enjoyed the sunset. The next day we pulled into Jalama Beach and scored a beach front spot. Next, a night in Avalia/Port San Luis where we kayaked to the light house point and saw an otter. He then headed to San Simeon State Campground and visited the Hearst Castle. Morro Bay Campsite was our last night of van camping and there we meet up with friends from HQ. After that, we checked into the Back Bay Inn in Los Osos. We enjoyed a three day celebration for Jason and Aislinns wedding. Our last day was capped off with an OctoberFest/Car show. All in all we scored great weather and enjoyed some time away from reality.

It’s Hot

A heat wave has hit the south land and it’s blazing hot. This is how I stayed cool and hydrated last weekend.
