Waikiki Amnesia, BBQ, and Diving

I'd booked two dives with Reef PiratesĀ in Hawaii Kaistarting very early with a pick up at 6am from the hotel. The advantage of the early dive was that we would have already dived sites that other dive companies would visit later, thereby getting the dive sites to ourselves. This was definitely the case for us.... Continue Reading →

Santa Cruzin’

I'm not going to say it, it is too cliche, but can't resist, please sing along...."Do you know the way to San Jose?!!" Thats our conundrum this morning as we leave Monterey. Our plan is to drive to San Jose and stop off along the way at some sights. There is a lot to do... Continue Reading →


  The road winds along the coast and gains altitude until you are driving alongside cliffs with incredible views off to the left side. By the time we arrived at Big Sur, it was sunset and getting pretty foggy. We got some nice shots of the sunset and McWay falls from the side of the... Continue Reading →
