Let the countdown begin...one month until I’m in my natural habitat again hanging in trees and reunited with the ocean. Aruba is quickly becoming my second home, no complaints here. ɢʀᴀᴛᴇғᴜʟ. 🇦🇼☀️ 🌊 🌴 #manifestmovement#arubaonehappyisland #aruba#carribean#islandyoga

. Two days ago the waves were firing at lobos island. When it’s perfect, this wave is 700 yards long...almost a 1/2 mile,...I paddled out to the usual crowd where at least 15 locals pack up the peak...leaving outsiders like me to wallow down the line, hoping someone will wipe out early...sigh...but sometimes you get lulled into a ‘swing-set’ which takes you dangerously close to the rocks...but the wave is just sooooo sweet and tempting. Well, I fell for the blue door, flying down curving, pitching, salty liquid through section after section...300 yards down the line. You get sucked into a sort of time warp, as the wave pulls the water up beneath you, a prismatic effect amplifies the sea floor, blues greens reds, even the grays and mossy blacks expand thru the aqueous magnifying ether.
This was about my 5th day of riding this point break, and today I was especially stoked cause I had found a genuine, albeit bruised and used, 7’6 Robert August hollow nose single fin in a smallish surf shop in corrallejo, an island port-city turned surf town where hoards of surfers from every corner of the globe descend every season and scour the island, nary a shoulder is left un-slashed.
As I glided along the face, I saw the last section was not makable, I tried to punch thru the wave, but got thrown to the rocks. I pushed off, and my foot slipped between two sharp rocks, the surging water twisting me, and lacerating my foot as I pulled it out....OUCH.
200 yards away, anchored nicely in the channel, was Grateful. A wonderful feeling considering the next closest village is miles away

यात्राएं और किताबें मुझमें रोमांच पैदा करती है वैसे ये एक दूजे के बगैर अधूरी भी है तबकी कुछ अधिक जब आप अकेले सफ़र कर रहे हों, किताबें साथी की तरह अकेले न होने का आभास दिलाती हैं। कल शाम घर से निकलने से पहले, आवाज़ आती है देखो कितना खुश हो रहे हो घूमने जा रहे हो। मैंने कहा - ऐसा कभी नहीं होता किसी भी यात्रा पर निकलने से पहले कईं शंकाएं चिंताएं होती है मन असमंजस में रहता है । पहले बस, फिर मैट्रो,ट्रैन, रहना, खाना ,कितने तो प्रबंध करने होते हैं।
मग़र हाँ ! जब तुम नई जगह पहुँच जाते हों तो रूह तर हो जाती हैं तब जरूर लगता है हाँ यहाँ आकर कोई गलती नहीं की। नहीं तो आराम से सुबह 9 बजे उठो नाश्ता करो टीवी देखो लंच करो सो जाओ फिर चाय टीवी खाना सोना। कितनी आसानी से छुट्टियाँ काटी जा सकती हैं। भई अब सिरफिरों को कौन समझाए। इनकी लक्ष्य सूची अलग होती है जीवन को देखने और जीने का नज़रिया अलग होता है। ख़मा घणी !
The first photo is grandpa August Heil, in the middle with all his siblings. Came across from Germany via Russia around 1915. Landed in Minnesota where they were builders. Next pic is dad, Delbert. He’s in the middle too. They moved from Minnesota to California, via Texas. Then there’s me and the WHOLE family. But again, I’m in the middle of the photo. I was raised in Hacienda Heights, ca. Moved to Oakland to make my building career and moved the whole family to San Luis Obispo where I raised my 3 kids. Just wanted to share a bit o history. .

I wish I knew about this place when I first started learning to ride. Full Day lift tickets at $40 for Military, Police, Fire, and Teachers is a steal. Not to mention one of the most mellow terrains I’ve ridden.

If anyone had seen our latest episode, you would see how hard it was to “attemp” a photo on top of Mt Wellington,Tasmania 😂
As you can tell from our faces the wind was incredibly strong but this was the best we could possibly do with what we had to work with haha!!
I had a blast climbing all over these mountains and rocks. I was able to take in some stellar views of this landscape. I also stumbled upon a pass through cave formed by the rocks. I wasn’t sure what was holding that rock in place. 😬. Eerie. Also at the top were some puddles of water in a crater. I wonder what animals know about these spots. 🤔. #travato#travatobasecamp #nomadlife #nomad#winnebagovan #winnebago#vanlife#vanlifediaries
