Yes thats a cheesy photo to start a blog post with, but well its pretty nice, so why not.
This week I was lucky enough to visit California for a meeting, and flew through Long Beach. Funny that the air traffic control and terminal look more like a boat than an airport.
As always the sun was out.
So much so that an ice cream man was cruising ocean side. When was the last time you heard an ice cream van playing his tune. Seems a thing from a time gone by.
Mr Dragon Surf was there getting his model face on.
Turns out you can have fires on the beaches here.
We had a good breakfast down at Buccanners and I shot pictures with flowers in the foreground to look artsy.
Even better, the “breakfast brodown” shot
Out on the water it was clean and small, perfect for me, lazy and slow. This isnt me, by the way I wouldnt have made it up that quick.
A real legend of the industry Mr Tobia, met us for a bit of a beach day, complete with Terje inspired Tattoo. Nicely done sir.
Brian Green found out he was on the beach on daddy day care duty instead of surfing.
Found this Lion inspired garden too for a spot of sun.
Classic Dana Point tourist photo.
Long way down.
Mr Dragon Snow, Kyle Martin just working it.
There is a surfbreak there too, really fun but a left so us regular footers where a bit slow off the mark.
