About lighthouses and fish skeletons

I made it to Biloxi just in time to see the sun set over the ocean. This is an incredibly beautiful experience. The wind was warm, the sand the perfect temperature, and the sunset lasted a long while before disappearing… Continue Reading →

Ventura Beach

We spent a lot of time walking along this beach… morning, noon, and night. It’s a beautiful beach, especially at night where the smell of camp fires and ocean really do a good job of helping you relax. Once you… Continue Reading →

Hollywood to Ventura (70 miles)

Remember last year’s roadtrip to Big Sur and Monterey along the West Coast Highway? Well, this is the Southern California (SoCal) version of that journey; we drove North along the coastal Route 1 from Los Angeles towards Santa Barbara and… Continue Reading →

Sonoma Beach Parks

The drive along the Sonoma coast is just as beautiful as the drive along Big Sur… and there’s much less traffic. As an added bonus, while driving by some of the more popular beaches we noticed there always seemed to… Continue Reading →

Pfeiffer Beach

Carlsbad Beach

Finding a parking spot was the most difficult part of going to the Carlsbad State Beach. We drove around hoping for a bit of luck and an empty space. It took a while, but once parked, all was golden. I… Continue Reading →

Qualicum Beach

Did you see it? Did you see it! There it goes. Look look look! It was an otter… a baby otter to be exact. It was running along the underside of the boardwalk, periodically stopping to stare at us. In… Continue Reading →

Parksville Sand Sculptures

On Vancouver Island, for a month between mid-July and mid-August, you’ll find the photographic feast that is the sand sculptures of Parkville Beach. The sculptures are a part of the Sand Sculpting Competition & Exhibition and is a big tourist… Continue Reading →

Playa Chica, Tarifa

We didn’t spend a lot of time beach going in Tarifa. The only beach we visited (on a very windy and somewhat rainy day) was the Playa Chica, the last beach of the Mediterranean Sea and the most Southern in… Continue Reading →
