Redondo and Hermosa Beaches, CA

Learning to surf was so much fun!  I actually got up and surfed two waves.  You can understand why surfers are in such good shape, it takes endurance to work your way out to, and stay in, the wave zone, quick reflexes to go from a laying on your hands and toes position to standing on a moving board, and then falling correctly into the waves and coming up while protecting your head with a hand from surfboards above.

Go to Pier Surf in Redondo Beach, CA if you would like to take a lesson and tell them I sent you.  Actually, tell them Josh sent you, he knows everyone in Redondo and Hermosa Beaches and at the Marina.

You can walk the boardwalk all along the beach for miles in front of some really expensive real estate.  Jay Leno has a place along the walk and I am sure quite a few other celebrities.  Dogs can walk the boardwalk, but are not welcomed on the beach.   Edgar loves the beach.

Change of Perspective

Today is my 54th Birthday.  How did that happen so quickly?  My niece is graduating from COLLEGE in May, my baby sister is closing in on 50.  WTF!

The journey begins heading south on 101 on my way to San Francisco to spend a few weeks chilling on my sister’s boat, tough duty 🙂

Your input will help guide me.   I expected my first hike to be Saddle Mountain, the tallest peak in the Coast Range, but a few feet of snow make it a bit dangerous, so I am heading farther south.   Tonight camping will be at Beverly Beach just north of Newport, OR.

Camping my way through North America is the plan, destinations unknown.   Visiting National and State Parks, writing this blog, photography and hiking are the agenda, everything else is up in the air.

Come explore with me………….
