One of the most important things you can do for children is harbor a love for nature. If you teach them to find joy outdoors you are giving them a means to be happy no matter where she is in her life, rich, poor or anywhere in between. Before you buy the next cool toy, let them feel the ocean on their toes.

Simply the best.


My altars are the mountains and the ocean.
Lord Byron (via chasinglinnaeus)


Sometimes I doubt life can get any better. (at La Jolla Shores Beach)


Coastal cities are the best cities.


The colors of the ocean get me every timeā€¦

A lot of people attack the sea, I make love to it.

The Bridge and The Bay, 2012

Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin’
Full time to floatin’
Under the sea
