Winding Down

As Summer draws to a close, setting up and looking forward to our last first day of school has never looked better.
Goodbye South swells and warm water.
I cannot wait to see what's in store for us...

Watery Wonderland

"A loss of the feeling of self-consciousness, the merging of action and awareness...
A distorted sense of time, one's subjective experience of time is altered...
The activity is intrinsically rewarding, so there is an effortlessness of action."
Trevor going with it...

Gato Heroi For Windows


Take a moment to step back and think about fortunate you are to be able to enjoy God's green Earth, to have the opportunity to take part in one big family each time you step into the watery waves of the ocean. We are privileged indeed.

Road Trippin'

A great day trip with Erica, Trevor, John, and Greg up to Santa Barbara to send Greg off to school...
A little bit of surf, and alot of laughs later, I'm really lucky to be able to spend time with these wonderful people!
