Just Your Usual Wednesday...

So that happened.  And on a Wednesday of all days!

Trapeze school was exhilarating and terrifying and so. much. FUN.  And as an added plus, I was looking straight out over the Pacific as the sun set in Santa Monica while I swung back and forth. . . . It was incredible!  A reminder that with risks come rewards.

every morning when I get the milk out}

P.S. Remember this episode of Sex and the City?  It's all I could think about!!!

5 Drinks, 25 Miles

Last weekend, Brian and I discovered our new favorite Saturday pasttime -- Beach Cruiser Bar-Crawling!  The perfect combination of my favorite things (beach, my new bike, and of course, day-time margs).  Plus, it's kind of an unintentional workout (my favorite kind)!

The route: Ocean Park to Manhattan Pier (and back again).

The stops:
Venice Alehouse -- Bloody's and brunch (wild-caught Alaskan salmon sandwich please!)
El Torito (Marina del Rey) -- surprisingly one of the best skinny margs around
Brew Co. (Manhattan Beach) -- lots o' beer (or if you're me, another skinny marg :))
Venice Whaler -- tequila sunrise as the sun sets (irony?)
Shutters -- champagne & oysters

I'm gearing up for Round 2 this weekend with our friends visiting from SF.  You may want to stay off the beach path this Saturday. . . .

Have a fun weekend friends!

Happy International Surf Day!

{yes, that's a thing}

{Half Moon Bay, CA}

I'll be taking some early-morning surf lessons, and eating a delicious food truck egg-breakfast at the Surfrider Foundation event to celebrate!

Also, cool vintage surf photos, and have you seen this documentary?

I've Found THE Perfect Shoe.

Her name is Reena.  And she comes in another color, too.

No need to look further.  Ever.

This weekend I'm unplugging.
Anything requiring a charger will not work where I'm going.
