Beachy Keen



So, I thought I would spare you a bit of moaning and groaning about the snow and give you a little beach moment here...doesn't it look wonderful! It has been almost a year since I was last in Bolinas. It's funny looking back on those older posts and seeing how much my blog and photography has changed. I feel like a completely different person now!



A very happy person at least, everything is coming together for the summer and I could not be more excited. I will be working for my friend's paddleboard company, as well as working at the general store. My job is going to be promoting the company and leading tours. Which basically means paddling about in tiny pink shorts and coercing unsuspecting tourists into coming out on the Lake with me. I am looking forward to it so much! The snow is melting melting melting here, which I have to say, I'm kind of glad about. I have been going on lots of walks, eating fresh salads, and spending lots of time trekking around my little neighborhood to see friends. My truck (more on that later!) has been broken for a few days until now (one of my friends is the best car fixer a girl could ever hope for!) and I have been so grateful for the warm weather since I have been hitching everywhere. I love that Tahoe is small and safe enough that everyone hitchhikes, it's kind of the perfect way to get around!



I think you've seen all of this outfit before, aside from the silk blouse. Of course, everything is thrifted, aside from my trusty shorts, which are French Connection. They are featured in my absolute favorite post from last summer, and I can't wait to start wearing them again!


Now, onto the beach. I went home to visit my family for a few days and met up with Jessie, a friend of a friend from Edinburgh. It was so lovely to be able to talk about Scotland again, I do miss it. I really enjoyed showing her a bit of California life outside of San Francisco, and we had a delicious picnic, relaxing walk on the beach, and such good chats while we watched the scenery whipping by my little car.


I hope you are all having wonderfully sunny times this week! Any interesting snippets of your week you'd like to share?

Oh, how I wish it was beach weather here. It seems like you had lots of fun at the shore, and you look adorable in your shorts. I hope we can hang out again the next time you're in San Francisco. Enjoy your weekend!

That beach looks so perfect; and such a cute outfit! I love your blouse, it looks great with the shorts. :D

Lea said...

That sounds like a really awesome job :)

Also, I think it is crazy to look back on how we were before in order to see how much we've changed. I think that's why I'm so attached to things like journaling and blogging.

The way you describe your life at the moment sounds completely perfect to me. Well, not the paddling about, since I'm hopelessly unsporty, but eating fresh salads and visiting with friends sounds great. These photos are lovely too... I'm sure you'll take many more great summer photos this year!

Becca said...

I went to the beach on Sunday too - for the first time in years.

Sounds like you got quite the summer coming!
