Wheels at First Light, Mt. Woodson, Potato Chip Rock, San Diego. 2013

As the wee hours of a clean, crisp morning give way to the heat of the sun, three yogis hold the Wheel Pose at 2,700 feet above sea level. Creep out on the precipice, strike a pose, and feel the energy of a billion radiant sunrises.
Namaste

Happy. Just in my swim shorts, barefooted, wild-haired, in the red fire dark, singing, swigging wine, spitting, jumping, running- that’s the way to live. All alone and free in the soft sands of the beach by the sigh of the sea out there…

Homemade Sling, Loreto, BCS. 2011
There is no shortage of ingenuity in Baja; where a scarcity of resources makes people get creative.

Wavestorm Winter, San Diego, Ca. 2012

Surfing and tequila… these are a few of my favorite things!

It’s a tradition to skin it on Christmas day regardless of conditions, and this year we added head gear into the mix! As always, no celebration is complete without a little shot of courage while we thaw out in the jacuzzi.

Soundtrack goes to Audien with “Wayfarer”.

Loreto Lookout, Loreto, BCS. 2011
(Left: Jamie Staunton, Right: Robby Crew)
Two good friends settling into the Baja pace on the way from Cabo back to the states.
Passport issues prevented Jamie from boarding a flight home, so we decided to drive and deal with the passport hiccup at the border. As we like to say…it was a mañana problem! In 3 days, we covered over 1000 miles of pristine desert coastline and got to explore a handful of incredible little towns along the way. It was one of the best road trips ever, so thank you Jamie for managing to get into Mexico with a passport that was days away from expiring and then waiting till the last minute to tell all of us…nothing changes with this guy!

Il Glorioso Sole Siciliano, Siculiana, Sicilia. 2011
I could never have imagined just how incredibly this evening in Siculiana would unfold.
As the sun began to set, three generations of Sicilian family and friends came together to celebrate the homecoming of one of their own. There was proseco, wine, fireworks, all kinds of seafood, and of course tales of the past.
After hours of laughter, tears, and singing, we danced in the streets, had one last drink, and said goodbye to everyone at least twice.
On that night, life happened. Complete strangers embraced like family and old friends spoke as if not a day had gone by. Everyone let go and time became irrelevant.

Craft of a Cousin, Nantucket, Ma. 2012
30 miles off the coast off Boston, a radiant late September sun illuminates this spectacular property. It being hurricane season and all…I’d say we lucked out on the weather!

Philz Coffee. It’s ridiculous. My friend Janson and I stopped for a cup one afternoon last week and ended up at the beach a half hour later! Here’s what went down!

Heard this one on Peirce Fulton’s “Get Weird” podcast. Very underrated. Cheers!

1962 356 B T-6 Twin Grille Roadster, La Jolla, Ca. 2012
This is one of a handful of models, whose fabrication was outsourced to a Belgian coachmaker, that made it to the US. Who knows how many have survived over the last 50 years, but this one is most certainly alive and well. It circulates the streets of San Diego every now and then, exercising its 1600cc, dual carb, flat 4 engine, and never ceases to turn heads along the way! It is truly a masterpiece of German design and engineering. A stunning car to behold!
Bort, thanks for bringing it back to life! The car deserves to be driven after all these years…Don’t you think!?
