06.10.2011 Boating @ Lake Lanier

Our friend Chris invited us to come out to Lake Lanier to hang out on the Pontoon Boat. It was supposed to rain, but we went anyways. We ended up being just outside of the storm for most of the day, it was great! 5 dogs, water, guitars, booze, and grilling steaks on the boat!

06.02.2011 Atlanta Koi and Pond

Brandon came back to Atlanta for a few days, we took a fishing trip at Stone Mountain and got drunk by the pool with a bunch of folks. Good times! While in town, Brandon insisted on checking out how Atlanta Koi & Pond was doing. We’ve been popping in and out of this place for years, and it’s amazing to see how he has transformed his yard into an amazing koi breeding spot! Here’s some pics.

Saturday we stopped to kayak at Elkhorn Park on our way back to San Francisco. It was awesome getting to see all the animals up close.

05.20.2011 Channel Islands Snorkeling

Friday we caught our boat and off we went to the Channel Islands! We took a one-hour boat ride to Santa Barbara Island. Unfortunately there was a big storm earlier in the week and it pretty much ruined all visibility along the West Coast for the whole week.

I was also an idiot and forgot to bring my contact lenses. I was so pissed at myself, but I figured out how to work around it with my glasses. We still had a blast and are planning for a camping/kayaking trip on a bigger island next time!

This Red Fox kept following us throughout the day. He eventually ended up falling asleep next to Brandon.

05.19.2011 Los Angeles

So we missed our boat to go snorkeling, we found out snorkeling in San Diego has been cancelled due to high currents, fuck it. Let’s go hang on the beach in L.A.

So that’s what we did. Bought a 12 pack of Tecate and drank it on the cold beach. Then we drunkenly stumbled around the boardwalk for a while and ended up at a corporate party for the night. Good times!

05.18.2011 Road Trippin

Wednesday we set out on our road trip from San Fran. We headed towards Santa Cruz again and hopped on Highway 1 from there. We stopped anywhere that looked like it had a nice view and whatever parks we came across.

Beaches! Stopped along Highway 1, just south of Santa Cruz.
