Ok, think about it for a minute: how freaking amazing do you feel when you are at the beach? I don’t need to go into detail, just close your eyes and think about it. You feel relaxed, amazing, vibrant, healthy, carefree, and usually the only thing you are worried about is if you are getting burned or not (sunscreen to the rescue). (more…)

Slice Of Life | Meet Winifred, the Pinniped! Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

IMGP0074
After class on Thursday, April 3, 2014, the waves were pretty flat, so I went for a paddle at Campus Point, not expecting the experience of a lifetime. I was just cruising, paddling and catching some baby waves when this California Sea Lion pup decided to come say hello! I first noticed her swimming along, and took a couple pictures, feeling lucky to be able to see such a beautiful creature in its natural habitat. When she came up to the nose of my board, I was surprised that she was so brave. The moment she clambered aboard, my mind was blown! I knew she must have been unwell, because she was quite a young pup to be away from her mother, but she didn’t seem injured or sick! I coaxed her back into the water but she hopped right back onto my board, cuddling and nuzzling up to me, as if I was her mother. A young boy and his father saw me, and paddled out. They too were excited, and the boy even asked me, “are you a mermaid?!” They were also kind enough to use my camera to take a picture of me with the pup (my selfie attempts weren’t working out so well)! When the young boy paddled up to my board, approaching the pup, she growled at him, and waddled over to me for safety. The boy and his father went in to look for help, but no one of authority was around!

I’ve seen a certain quote circulating around a lot lately. I don’t know who said it, but it is a 100% certified, amazing truth. “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”

Yes, yes it is. Think back on some of your best stories, memories, laughs, pictures…my bet, is the majority of them have something to do with travel. Whether it was a weekend road trip or three weeks in South Africa, getting out and seeing what this big ‘ol amazing world has to offer is one of the more amazing and exhilarating things you can do.

If your idea of travel happens to involve a board that incurs a rather hefty baggage fee, well then let’s say that type of travel hits the jackpot. Surf trips get you in the water, give you a ton of exercise, and are great for your mental and physical health. Yes, even if there is an obnoxious wave hog in your group. Or a boat of them following you wherever you go.

So, my theory is this: if travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer, well then, a surf trip is like winning the lotto.

…which is always a great excuse to go on one.
