Good morning! It’s our last one in Seal Beach for now but I know we’ll be back in California soon. These days have been just the best. Nothing beats chill days on the beach with my love, a couple of boards, and some beers. I love the view from the balcony, too…the perfect place to sip coffee and see what the waves are doing. Embracing this time off to the max…it feels soooo good! Going to get one more beach session in this morning (SUP or surf, depending on the waves) then shower and get packed up to head to LAX. Flying to Copenhagen overnight then to Krakow, Poland the next evening. I think we have enough time on the layover to go and explore Copenhagen which should be cool! Talk to you from LAX, the plane, or from Europe…so excited! Ciao babeskillets, Tita xx
Cruising around on big boards!
Good morning! It’s been so nice being in California the last few days. Everyone is on the fully relaxed program, as well so it’s just the best. On Friday we did an LA day which had my heart. I love going there and checking out different areas and places each time…I fall a little more in love every trip, too. I have lots of photos to share which I’ll edit and post soon! Yesterday was another chill day in Seal Beach. We cruised around on the big paddle boards all afternoon…such a relaxing thing to do. We had some sweet rollers to transport the boards to the beach haha. It’s a quick walk to the water, but with big boards it’s a little bit of a struggle. Essex caught some waves while I just paddled around haha. Maybe I’ll try to catch some waves on the SUP one of these days, though. We had a delicious dinner at Captain Jack’s in Sunset Beach last evening for Essex’s grandpa’s big 80th birthday. The best crab I’ve ever had…HUGE Alaskan King crab! If you’re ever there and feeling peckish, definitely check this spot out. It’s been around for more than fifty years, too. Alright, today’s plan is more fun time in the water and on the beach. Maybe some surf or maybe some SUP and a little beach volley mixed in. Soaking up all these perfectly blissful days. Happy Sunday babeskillets, Tita xx
El interminable verano 🙂
Winding down for the night on this end. I had a more laid back afternoon today: got a haircut after work and then went on a long walk along the water with my sister featuring Greek yogurt ice cream. Mmmmm! Felt so summery, the air was so nice this evening. Speaking of laid back lifestyles, it doesn’t get more chill than the surf life in Mexico. I rented a board from WildMex Surf and Adventure, which has an awesome set up. They have a location in the town of Sayulita right by the beach as well as at La Lancha (I wrote a post about this spot here). I rented for the week and was able to grab a board from either location anytime and return it by close that day, or keep it as long as I wanted (or until my week was up). It’s awesome because you can try a different board everyday. Long, short, whatever the waves dictate or you desire. I tried a sweet Robert August longboard one day that was so old-school and fun (The Endless Summer is one of my favorite movies…the 1960s surf flick that makes everyone feel happy). Retro looking boards are so pretty, too. Highly recommend this spot for renting though! The staff are super friendly and chill, there’s a wide selection of boards from beginner to high performance, AND the shop is air conditioned (rare in Sayulita haha). Sometimes we would pick up boards in the evening if we wanted to go for an early morning surf before the shop was open. Walking down Gringo Hill to the highway (to hitch hike to the spot of choice) was so beautiful in the early hours. Sounds of roosters and views of jungle mountains galore. Waking up and starting the day in an open air casita feels very “surf” as well…the beauty of the morning commute starting in the backyard. I loved it! It’s always fun to bus with surfboards as well haha. The beach in Sayulita also has some waves and it was honestly my favorite place to surf…perfect little longboard waves! It gets a little crowded in the evenings but still plenty of room, and it’s literally right in town. Anyway, time to drink some herbal tea and head to bed. Back on the work grind early in the AM tomorrow, but from home! Goodnight babeskillets, Tita xx
