Surf Trip & The Chinook

A few weeks ago, Dan and I spent the weekend at El Capitain with some friends. We finally got a chance to bring the Chinook – a 1976 popup camper that D’s been restoring for the past few months. It was completely roached when we got it…he put in new wood floors, chairs, carpet, storage beds, a sink and a mini fridge! This man is amazing! He even sewed his own curtains and my Grandpa taught him how to make custom cushions for the bench seats. It turned out pretty cool.

It was a fun weekend…a little cold, but nice to getaway with friends, sit around a campfire and cook dinner together. After 1 night in El Cap, we drove back down to Ventura for a little more surf before going home. Fun times.

Breakfast time. Making coffee for the crew.
It was a fun and fast trip. Here is a little clip of our weekend.

Our Jalama Adventure

About a month or so ago ( I know I am super behind on posts!) we went on our annual trip to Jalama, CA. It was a wild weekend with 60 mph winds, sand storms and broken tents. But we always try to make the best of things right? Here are some pictures from our weekend in Jalama.

Jalama Trip

Here are some pictures from our trip to Jalama Beach. It was a fun weekend. We were glad to get away for just a few short days; to take a break from work and wedding planning. It’s nice to clear your head once in awhile. Funny thing though… we hit a huge rain storm and 40mph winds! We spent most of the time inside the Winnebago with our friends, but any time spent with friends is time well spent! The weather wasn’t on our side, but the waves sure were!

Here is a picture of our camp, during a spot of sunshine…the poles we used to hold up the awning were bent in half by morning time (the wind was that STRONG). How exciting!

Dany T. (one of my lovely bridesmaids) and I were the only ladies on the trip. Making dinner for a bunch of hungry guys is quite a task. They’ve got it too good.
