Beach Song

In summer when the days are long and sweet
There is nothing like the sand under one’s feet
The saltwater is the remedy that lightens our load
We swim away from our sorrows, pleasures to decode
The surf is a mighty playmate, requiring skill and respect
When you learn to ride waves, your body reconnects
With eternal movements of planets, moons, and stars
Granting wisdom and confidence wherever you are

Virgin of Guadalupe Surfin Safari

I was lucky enough to see the surfing virgin in person during her brief stay on an underpass in Encintas, CA.  She was perfect there, just a few blocks from Moonlight Beach.  She was removed and I think she went to LA to a collection.  There was a great uproar to save the art work, but alas she was taken from the site. Tomorrow is the 12 Dec, Virgin of Guadalupe day.  I know all her fans at the beach wish she still had a shrine they could see every day in Encinitas.

During the protest the Kook at Cardiff was dressed in her image to show solidarity.  If you enjoy costuming and are not familiar with the Kook, you can check his calendar here.

Best Beach Bar

November 19, 2012

There is no other place like the Kraken, in Cardiff by the Sea, CA. This live music venue is loved by surfers, bikers, and all kinds of folks. Step inside and it is always in another time zone ( about 1976). On Sundays the Brokers play from the late afternoon until 9 pm. This is my favorite time to go because it is before my bedtime. The crowd is always classic California and the music always rocking. The lagoon is out back and the beach right across the street.  Meeting my friends Jodina and Beth there last night for a dancing good time reminded me why I love North County and the old surfer culture..still alive and rocking the Coast Hiway.
