Sigh… As Day 30 of my #30daysofsurf draws to a close, I find a confession weighing on my heart. I thought that this month of daily surfing would be just the trick to finally getting barreled. Alas… it. just. hasn’t. happened. For surfers, almost every wave is awesome- because surfing is awesome. The joy we […]

Smells Like Freedom.
Today marks fifteen days since I’ve surfed. I’ve filled my days with reading, blogging, writing fifty pages of my epic saga. Steven King’s epic saga (according to him) is his seven novel compilation, The Dark Tower series. He started writing it at age nineteen and finished at age fifty seven. Thirty-eight years, it took him […]
Marina Life: A Friend In the Bathroom
It was only our second day at Kona Kai marina, and we were really making ourselves at home. After spending a night at La Quinta in Old Town and getting our land legs back, we drove back to Shelter Island and pulled into the large parking lot between the Kona Kai hotel and the Best […]
Rant for Responsibility
I will take all of the credit, and none of the blame. What is it about our culture today that makes that concept pretty much universally accepted? Recently, I was seriously injured in a surfing mishap. I can’t call it an accident, because I still don’t know whether or not the girl on the massive […]
The Final Countdown.
The Home Stretch It’s hard to describe the feeling I had waking up on the last day of our journey south. Excitement and gratitude that the trip was almost over mixed with a twinge of regret that the adventure was coming to an end. I hadn’t a clue at the time that the situation awaiting […]

Travel | Sailing Days 8-11 The Hazy Days
The details of the last four days of the journey are somewhat fuzzy now, having faded into the hazy sort of memories that time creates. It’s only my desire to blog the “now” which compels me to blog the “then”, since it seems to explain how we got here. Day 8: Marina del Rey This […]
Pizza and Volcanoes
Day 6 Oxnard Wanderings and Further South Big Lots. Toppers. Panda Express. Welcome back to society, to civilization. It’s amazing how much one day at sea can free a person from the confines of the day-to-day routine. Waking up Thursday morning in Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard, CA, felt lovely. Brent and I had absolutely […]
I’m on a boat. And this time, I like it.
Sailing Day 3, 4, 5 Santa Barbara to Oxnard Day 3: Santa Barbara Sunshine I woke up Monday morning feeling rested after a full nights sleep. Brent was still snoozing quietly next to me, so I crept over him (well, I clumsily rolled over him- boats are not conducive to stealthy movements) and proceeded to […]
