I'm really gonna miss catching fish like this 🎣
Went down to the gulf yesterday.
The beach run is less than a month away! Found this gem on the path. Sea glass from an old coke bottle made in Houston. #gulfofmexico #seaglass #houston #htown #coke #beach #hollybeach
Little surf fishin on thanksgiving!
Today involved two car ferries and a looong drive along the Gulf of Mexico! I saw lots and lots of dolphins and a gator! And I dipped my toes in the Gulf - it was disturbingly warm and smelt funny.
Beach go'ers enjoying the fun on Holly Beach, Louisiana.
I was restless this weekend.... Sunday was a beautiful day, and I wanted to drive..... So off and running like a Hurd of turtles I went.. Picking a direction, I headed south, past subdivisions, past closed shops, the road kept going. The music was loud and the air crisp, and soon I was smelling that sweat smell of salty air. Soon, the marsh began to appear, the docks and people fishing... Just passing the day away listing the the cool grease go by... The path soon took me along a narrow road to the beach. Stopping the car and taking my shoes off I walked along the beach, letting the water pass over my toes as only the gulf waters can.. I walked alone with my thoughts a bit, listening the the crashing of the waves and the sounds of the seagulls circling high above.. Soon, it was time for me to leave once again.. Off on another adventure.. Down the road I must go..
Sometimes it’s nice to find a quietish place where you can let the cyclical sounds of nature grab your thoughts.
Sunset Holly beach, Louisiana
Just south west of New Orleans, Holly Beach allows camping on the sand. 🙌 So naturally, we camped on the beach passing through Thursday night. ✨ Yesss! 💙
Hard to believe we will be done with our road trip in just a few days! I'm sure y'all are like, "they're still on the road?!" The feeling of being free on the road was something I'll never forget. But now I long for the days when I'll have my own home, bed, and kitchen that isn't in constant motion. I miss my daily yoga practice and staying grounded. So, we are happy to say that we are moving back to Oregon, the state that we still love despite seeing so make cool places over the last 6 months. Pacific northwest, here we come!
Took a random trip to the beach. Counting my blessings.🌊
Another successful holly beach trip

Spontaneous little family outing
Another (12 hour) Fishing Trip in the books.. thanks to my dude @e.v.a.n.88 and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico! I never could've imagined having this much fun, waiting for the fish to bite 😎👌🏼
I have had the best Saturday with my little family. I had the day off so we headed to the beach to search for shark teeth and collect seashells ❤️ the beach is my happy place. It was so peaceful and there is something so magical about looking for treasures with my babies. This has been a Saturday well spent and my heart is so content ❤️ happy Saturday friends!
Having the best Saturday searching for shark teeth and collecting seashells ❤️
Day 69 - The Southern Coast of Louisiana to Texas. I planned to get a new rear tire. I rode to Baton Rouge a large city. It was Tuesday and I expected success. I shouldn’t have been surprised that on the flat lands of the South, no one rides Dual Sport so no one stocks a tire. I called Houston a day ahead. I called the biggest store in town. “We don’t stock that but we can order one in”, as I expected. The tire would take a day to arrive. I moved along the coast off the interstate. I encountered showers but no rain. The flooding obvious from the hurricane. I arrived at the beach and met a couple travelling with their two cats. I had lunch and noticed the exposed belts of my rear tire. Shit. I was 100 miles out of Houston. I research how far I could push it. “I’ve ridden 80 miles on a flat!” one said. I can make it if I don’t stress it. No hard bumps or high speed. I rode 40mph all the way to my campsite. I crossed a ferry and through the wetlands and into Texas. The oil refineries abundant. I found a service road that ran parallel to the Interstate. I could follow it all the way to Houston. It’s safer to travel 40mph on that than against traffic doing almost twice that with trucks. It was meant to be. I found shelter in a park from the misty rain that constantly fell. It was cold but it was better than nothing.
Really pretty Sandbar Shark I caught this morning. She was a strong little girl. 💪🏼💪🏼
