THE JOURNEY HOME

PART FIVE The morning of May 5th we woke up with the sun and walked the short distance down to the beach with our surfboards. We spent the morning catching waves and enjoying being in the warm salty water. Lela sat on the beach, greeting people who walked past, hoping for belly rubs. After a […]

DORYS FINAL RESTING PLACE

PART FOUR Dory rolled into the city and we made plans on where we would keep our things as the van got prepared to be shipped back home. We spent the first night at a hostel cleaning out the van and packing everything up to make it slightly organized. We had hand shaped boards from […]

LAST ADVENTURE WITH DORY

PART THREE The ride in the taxi to the customs building was pretty nerve racking. It wasn’t too long of a drive and we made it just after they opened. Ella immediately went inside to check if our papers had gone through and lone-behold, they hadn’t. We waited hours and hours, checking every so often […]

A WEEKEND WITHOUT DORY

PART TWO I was put into a car with a very kind man who barely spoke any English and to make things more awkward my Spanish was not up to par as I hadn’t spoke to someone in Spanish for over a year. They had split us up so that Ella and I wouldn’t just […]

LAKE MICHIGAN

I spend most of my days in the water. Whether it be in the ocean or in the big beautiful freshwater lake I’m so lucky to live on. My parents opened up our surf shop, Sleeping Bear Surf and Kayak, when I had just turned 5 which ultimately lead me to who I am today. […]

BLEACHED FOREST

My favorite part about swimming in the ocean is diving underwater and seeing all the beautiful bright colors of the coral reefs. Bright blues, purples, pinks and greens pop out from every corner of my eye. It’s an entire other world living around and below us. Its occurred to me as I’m writing this that […]
