Whitewater rafting on the American River, Coloma, CA

What I love about my girls: they’re always up for anything! I just sign the waivers, tell them it’s safe and they don’t ask any questions. It’s great! Rafting on the American River in Coloma, CA east of Sacramento.

Nice and Calm, Right?…

Grant Park, Ventura CA

One of my favorite places in California. Ventura is a killer little town with great surf, a cool downtown and laid-back vibe. Beautiful place!

It didn’t really matter where you pulled off on the PCH in Big Sur. It was beautiful in every direction.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium integrates directly into the Pacific Ocean. The water actually works right into the exhibits and provides scientists an excellent place to do their work. Genius! And beautiful!

The Ice Plant in St. Augustine, FL is an excellent example of reclaimed architecture. The former working ice plant is now a restaurant. Cool spot! Nom Nom.

The view from behind a large cargo ship in Jax, FL

I took an airboat tour (Crazy Fish) with the family out at Mayport recently, and it was indeed crazy! Quite fun, actually! Among other things, we got right up behind this massive cargo ship leaving the channel. The picture can’t even begin to effectively communicate how big this thing was. Amazing that these things can actually float.
