Fan Palm on Newport Beach, CA

Listening to the crashing of the waves, the call of the seagulls and the rustling of the palm fronds and you are instantly more relaxed. #wheresmyhammock #coronaplease #imagesofrelaxation

The Family That Surfs Together
Newport Beach, CA
There were many beginners and familys surfing at Newport Beach. It seams to me that it may be one of the more family friendly surf breaks on the coast. Situated between Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach it has a surf city pedigree as well.

Under the Newport Beach Pier

I have the opportunity to travel for work, however there is rarely time to "stop and smell the roses." Being a construction manager my typical trip consists of job site visits and a meal usually with a bourbon at the hotel bar, sleep and then back to the airport. I try to pick one point on the map near one of the job sites that has the makings of a decent photograph. When travelling in California the beach seams to be a logical choice.

Learning to Fly @buckhill
Brother Bear (Age 5) ended the ski season with a bang! I am proud and impressed at the self confidence and toughness he gained skiing this year.
He was the smallest guy in the terrain park this past weekend and being the only place open in the metro area it was crazy busy, he got knocked down, pushed around and bounced off the tow rope...twice, and he still kept going until he landed a big jump.

Well done my man! .

#NewBikeDay

Incredibly proud of Brother Bear, he has been doing chores to earn money over the past year and gathering spare change from grandmas car and aunt Linda's purse. He decided to buy a bike with the money he earned. It is a 6 speed so he should have no problem keeping up on the trails or conquering the hills of #lebanonhills or #buckhill ...

The Terrain Park on a Sunny Day @buckhill

Post Dinner Micro Adventures

When the weather starts to warm up, and the sun stays up, Brother Bear and I head out on short after dinner micro adventures. I used to carry him in a backpack carrier, now we ride our bikes.
We heard the water flowing from Upper Lake to Lower Lake down the spillway so we floated branches and twigs down the steps.

We also stopped at the park, and noticed the extraordinary amount of trash now visible due to snow melt. It gave me a good idea for Earth Day on April 22nd, our adventure will include some trash bags and some time cleaning up.

What are your plans for Earthday?

Hill Safety Toboggan Check

One of the great benefits of ski patrolling @buckhill are the fresh corduroy tracks.
