Hello friends! It’s been a minute hasn’t it? How has everyone been? Doing well? Good.
So thanks to Ji-San, I finally got the chance to dust the cobwebs off of my camera yesterday! And I’ve noticed that a few things generally tend to happen when we get together. These include (but are not limited to): fleeing from authority, getting into potentially awkward situations with Chinese cyclists, and, maybe most importantly, making people’s minds implode. I guess we’re kind of boring.
What kind of saturday afternoon would it be if Kate and I didn’t treat ourselves to a wine tasting after attending Cardiff’s Canine Festival? Carruth Cellars, we love you (almost as much as your staff and patrons love us).
Is it any wonder why this is my most favorite surf event of the year?
Ah, Punta Cana. Although this tourist destination is famous for its beautiful beaches and palatial balnearios, I personally know it best as the home of all-you-can-eat french fries, ambiguously sculpted towel animals, and a guido whose legal name is actually “Guido.”
My parents and I embarked on a vacation last week to this particular place with a gang of our longtime family friends. We spent our days lazing by the ocean, eating our butts off, and finding sand in the most random of orifices. It was glorious.
Below is a quick summary of our travels; if you’re looking for some more in-depth coverage, I uploaded a few handful of photos from the trip into five batches for your high-resolution viewing pleasure: batch uno, batch dos, batch tres, batch cuatro, batch cinco. Ole!
The weather in San Diego this weekend was beautiful. So beautiful in fact, that an impromptu, post-workout backyard barbecue filled with sliders, sausage dogs, guacamole, and, uh, stability balls? was completely necessary.
Yet another adventure shoot, featuring the incomparable Mr. Lee!
This time our journey took us to the depths of Cardiff-By-the-Sea in an oft-forgotten area of land by the ocean, where a quick hike from a conservation center brought us to a narrow walkway overgrown with plants and trees. Skating was, uh, most likely not allowed, but what can I say? We’re the baddest of asses.
I had the pleasure of having a nice grill and poolside session with Tairyn and her boyfriend Ryan this weekend! We packed our bellies full and laid out to our hearts’ content. Operation: Tan Like a Baus was a complete success.
