We walked down the beach looking for the group
Found starfish instead
Back up we go
Finally found the kids

Susan repels first
She made it!
Strapping in with our fearless leader. I hate heights, but he was so calm and cool about everything you kind of just trusted that it wasn’t a big deal to be all the way up there about to repel down a mountain hanging by a rope
Woot! We waited at the bottom while everyone made their way down to have some snacks, throw the frisbee around and hear what exciting jobs they have. Everyone we’ve met in these hiking and rock climbing groups have been pretty great
The shoes make so much of a difference. Little edges that stick out and don’t seem at all able to support your weight can actually handle it when you have them on.
Susan and Col scaling like a coupla gladiators
I felt like spiderman scaling this thing it was so much fun. Had to try to remember to use more muscles in your legs than in your arms which is the natural thing to want to do and pull yourself up, but if you plant your legs they do a lot of the work. Knowing this my arms were still wicked sore for a few days after
So it’s Monday, we’re already rock climbing in Malibu and then a baby whale shows up? How is my heart not in this state? It’s clearly not working right.
“Where’d he go?”
EVERY single one of these strawberries was the perfect strawberry shape. Almost suspiciously so, and they were also gd delicious. We got another one of those awesome yellow mangos we had in Mexico and some black and blueberries
All which we have been bombing our beloved oatmeal with each morning
All real well played, California, well played
