Cali Roadtrip

One of my very favorite things about summer, aside from long languid days spent lazily idling on a beach in Mexico, is taking road trips.  Nothing beats hopping in a car with your best friend, a big mug of strong coffee, the promise of waves, and miles of open road.  This past summer Kelsey and […]

Ladies Surf Trip to Mexico

P1060448

 We recently took a little ladies surf trip to the east cape of Cabo San Lucas. Ten days of waves, bikinis, tacos, sunshine, and driving up and down dusty roads left us salty, tan, and a little blonder. With just a two hour flight from San Jose, Cabo is a fairly cheap and extremely easy no […]
