Amanda Heidt  Wander-lusty 🌏, food-centric 🌯, coffee-fueled ☕️, adventure-seeking 🗺, climbing-obsessed 🧗🏻‍♀️marine scientist 🦀👩🏻‍🔬🔬living a life of Factor-2 fun.

All I’ve gots my honor, a tolerance for pain, a couple of college credits, and my top-notch brain.

@onechicktravels and I fulfilled something that really did seem like it would always be a dream: we got to go see #Hamilton in Las Vegas!

When the carpet is red, you scrub the dirt off and dress up. 👯‍♀️

It’s #WorldOceansDay , how are you going to get out and appreciate? Got myself down to Mount Tamalpais (finally) with @eila_june to breathe it all in.
.
But really, every day is Oceans Day. 🏝🌁🌎🌊

Lots of pictures from this year’s Horseless Carriage Club campout coming up, but until then I’ve been forcing my hand at some artistic expression.

I’ve been sick 😷 and bed-ridden 🤕 and gross 🤒 for days with the flu.

Here’s a picture of me looking ok, thanks to my secret weapon @lindzbitz

When “camping light” still requires a full bar and a scallop and crab dinner.

I can’t imagine why we find it so hard to get people to come on these outings with us. We must be too weird 😏

Hello Friends!
.
I’m moving to SF this summer to do science communication work with KQED, so I'm going to be subletting my apartment June-August. I'd love to get someone I know.
.
I have a studio apartment in Aptos. Walking distance to a cute little shopping plaza, the beach, and the mountains! I pay $1100/month, utilities included.
.
The pictures are from when I originally moved in, but they give you the right idea. I have a bedroom with a full-size bed, a cute little kitchen, nice living area, full bathroom, an off-street parking spot, and access to some garage storage space. And you can live alone!
.
If you're interested, I can talk more specifics with you. I plan to be into my new place on/near the 15th of June. I'm also hoping to be able to leave most everything in there as-is, and just open up space in the closets/drawers/kitchen.

Fine, you guys don’t like photos of my coffee setup, I get it. Here’s the photo @onechicktravels called “the best of the lot,” (probably not her actual words) and I’m not even embarrassed because you really need all those chins to encompass how much my hands hurt after that tower. Castleton Tower, Kor-Ingals.

☕️ Coffee ☕️ Coffee ☕️ Coffee ☕️ Coffee ☕️

This weekend’s breakfast brought to you by “all 1930’s camping equipment, except when we used a blowtorch to melt the cheese on our hashbrowns.”

Thank you as always @scribbleyfribley for your culinary genius.

I’m seeing stars at the @mosslandingmarinelabs Open House 2018. #mlmlopenhouse2018

Went to #SomewhereNearDeathValley in the spring and all I got was insane wind, 90-degree weather, and one blooming cactus. 😏❤️🏜

Alright, slightly TMI coming, but it’s amazing so I’m saying it anyways.
.
I swear, I must be a clairvoyant or an idiot savant or have the Sight or something, because I have weirdly poignant insights that wake me in the middle of the night.
.
Last year, I woke up touching my boob, and I felt a lump. Went to the doctor (I’m fine). The other night, woke up at 2:30 with a brilliant insight to invite the @mosslandingmarinelabs Quilt Guild to the Colloquium, and now they’re coming. Used to wake up from sleep with formulas stuck in my head, probably the cure for cancer.
.
The picture has no bearing on this conversation, it’s just a cool example of some meiofauna I pulled out of some beach sand last weekend. 🦐
