We had a great weekend. A dear friend of ours moved back to California and has been staying with us for a while. Since I am one that will celebrate anything if given the chance I decided we needed to celebrate his return with a trip to the tide pools. Many people think of the beach as this sunny place with people in bikinis, but if you are from Norther California you know that is not true. They are rocky and cool and stunning year round.
While on our beach day we got to have so many great conversations. One of them brought a great deal of realization on my part. I realized I am compiler. I take the best things I can find in on one end and spit out something useful on the other. Take an over sized car, 6 friends and free time out comes a beach holiday. Take bread (from possible the single greatest place in the world to buy bread from) sharp cheddar, and apples and out comes grilled cheese.
I hope you find some great things to compile soon.
note* we visited Shell Beach in Bodega Bay, ,, Wildflour Bakery, The Volunteer Fire Department in Bodega, and the Bodega Bay Visitors Center

Everything is put through a filter before it gets to us these days. This will be a space where photos will be unfiltered, simple projects will be showcased and more difficult ones will not be portrayed as things that only took a few minutes. This will be a place where I show in photos and short posts some of the things that inspire my family and business. I hope that you will be inspired to try something different!
