I’ve had two convertibles in my life and sometimes when I get on a beautiful winding road I really miss

3 Palm Trees, 2 Airstreams, 1 Ocean = Perfect Weekend!
It’s Monday, again. Anyone else feel like 2021 is flying by, and the weekends need to be longer? Maybe we were all forced to slow down a little in 2020 and while no one wants to go through that again, maybe shaking up the pace wasn’t so bad. 🤷🏼♀️
Southern California in the summer with no advanced reservations? 😳 Almost impossible, but with the right friends, persistence, and some good luck, we have managed to continue our stay right on the beach for nearly two months now. These beach camp vibes are still going strong.
Super Flower Blood Moon. Last week, @tincanadventure and I ventured back to our spot above the clouds. It’s a hairy drive, and nowhere near Airstream compatible, so we spent the night in the @wanderhouseoutdoors tent. We had an epic sunset on the way up, popped some cold brews to calm the nerves from the drive, then woke early to catch the moon. The cloud layer was thick, and at first, we couldn’t even see the moon, but it peaked out long enough to get a few shots. As I was looking through them later, I noticed a tiny spot in one of the frames. At first, I thought it was a speck on my camera sensor, but then I zoomed in and discovered this tiny plane. What a view that must have been for the pilot! Even though the conditions weren’t ideal, it was still a great adventure with good company. Can’t beat that!!
Happy Memorial Day. As you enjoy time with friends and family, don't forget to take a moment to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. 🙏🏼 We would personally like to honor our friends @noa_the_airstream_, who recently joined our caravan. Frank, we are so grateful for your service, and Xiomara, I know your strength pulls you through those long deployments. It’s been wonderful getting to caravan with you. Te amamos como familia. 🤗
Who’s ready for a long weekend? 🙋🏼♀️
Some experiences are hard to capture in one square. At first glance, this may look like any other sunrise. Look closer.
The first two photos are what I ‘think’ I look like doing yoga. The last two are what I really look like doing yoga. 😂
Oh, the places we have been. When we started our Airstream adventure, we had only planned to be on the road for a year. We quickly realized that a year wasn't long enough to truly experience all the incredible places in our country. Two and a half years later, we still find gems we had never heard of that blow our minds. 🤯 There is still a thrill on travel days, but some places are so unique, we are sad to leave. Then I remind myself that we can always come back. Nothing is time-boxed, we are on #airstreamtime 😊
Mobius, Mount Whitney, and Me.
To all the beautiful moms, here, gone, and those yet to be, I celebrate you today.
Our connection is lousy, but the view is decent. 🏔 It’s been a week since I’ve posted anything, but a lot has happened in that time. I celebrated a milestone birthday 🥳 while working on a fun project. It might not have been how most people would spend their birthday, but there are a few places I am happier than behind my camera. 📷 I’m focused, and I’m creating. Not just creating an image, but creating a life and following a dream.✨
Missing the beach and our good friend. We parted Thursday for some work commitments, but our time at the beach was lovely. I’m ‘trying’ to learn surfing and enjoyed time playing in the waves and sipping coffee on the beach in the morning. When we get back, it’s my turn to teach and scuba diving will be on the books. 🤿

Home is where the dog runs to greet you.🐾♥️ Big, tiny, short, and tall. Doesn’t matter. We love them all! It’s hard to explain the bond with a dog. Yes, there are sacrifices, sometimes they do dumb dog things, but few things on earth can make you smile like your pup's sweet face. Why else would people be willing to pick up 🐶💩-🧤😷?
The best thing about camping on the beach? Lunch break surf sessions! I enjoyed getting a few snaps of lovely @tincanadventure riding the waves. The conditions weren’t great but I’m pretty sure an hour playing in the water doesn’t bring about any regret.
About this time last year, we upgraded our solar power setup.☀️🔋 We now have four lithium @battlebornbatteries, five @zampsolar panels, and a 3000w @victron_energy inverter. We also rewired the Airstream to be able to use every plug through the inverter. It was a challenging project, but the freedom it's given us to stay off-grid for weeks at a time has been incredible, not to mention the views. 🌄
There may be a hilarious photo of me in an ‘interesting’ pose floating around the internet. I squeezed between this crack to get this shot, and as I was peeling myself and my tripod out, I noticed I had an audience behind me.😳🙈💁🏼♀️
