Late summer Saturday swimming at my favorite spot with some of my favorite friends. Heavy heat, cool water and mezcal on the beach. I don’t wish for much more than this.

Summer camping kickoff!! A 24 hour lemon car race in Grass Valley (we only caught about 6 hours to be honest). Tents by the Deschutes River, guns and red beers in the morning. Wouldn’t have traded this weekend for anything.

A piece of advice. If you are going on a camping trip and are going to have your car break down, definitely try to do it where there are 150 mechanics hanging out for the weekend. We couldn’t find anyone to fix whatever horrible sounding thing went wrong with Saab-y, but we did manage to get the race officials to offer to put a car pulled from the race back in in trade for a quick tow two hours back to Portland. Someone went for it, so the car headed back to town and we all carpooled to the camping spot…

Worth it, because:

We nailed it this weekend. Good job guys!

Saturday, coast. I am a skeptic and wore long pants because in 12 years of living in Oregon it has never actually been hot at the beach. Boy was I ever wrong this time. Most perfect day ever!

.

.

Tempted to post a bunch of iPhone photos but I’m not gonna do it. Digging out my missing camera connector to post my real photos, so we’ll just have to wait. (**EDIT** I’m glad I waited. Good ones!)
