Michigan folk. And each one of them has been awesome, with common traits of kindness, humility, friendliness, and a […]

… A desert is a place without expectation. As we drove through the dark night, I looked up at the waning moon and wondered idly if this desert trip to shoot for the yoga project at 4am was really the best idea. Caffeinated yet bleary eyed, fueled by Perfect bars and coffee, I stared blankly […]

Posted on: May 31st, 2012 by admin

Day 1: Getting Our Sea Legs The first 24 hours of our maiden voyage have been nothing short of grueling. We departed Morro Bay in haste Saturday afternoon after finally identifying a 24-36 hour weather window which looked promising- winds 15-20 knots, dying to 10-20 after midnight, and seas 8-10 feet, subsiding to 6-8 after […]
