First trip to Catalina for the year

The weather report said it would be 90 degrees. That didn't happen, but it was a beautiful day.

The wind was low, the water, glassy.

A personal goal of mine was to rehab my broken leg in time to be able to climb and jump off Frog Rock in Catalina this summer. I'm glad to report that goal has been nailed.

The old Atwater Arcade may not be the same pretty soon. I fear change.

The inside of the arcade is under construction!

such a sweet set of photos! Dianna looks so young, like thirty. I wonder how old she is. I went to the river today, sunk my feet in it, but it's melting water so it's very cold. Chill tube, haha!

A good all weblog post. sans hashtags and spam comments.

There's a moonstone beach in my 'hood also.So far i've only gone to the river and beach a couple of times. need to get out more for this summer.

total happy photos. Those are photos I would like to see on my facebook wall of updates.

The internet is totally changing stores. A local store house like that where I live,the ice cream parlor and toy store bounced. everybody buys shit off amazon now.

lol do some sand sculptures in your next exhibit

the bucket hat is super hip bro. speaking of hip-ness. there is a lack of pot leaf motif on Toy Machine product. that shit's all the rage now, those fuggin Huf socks and shit.

tenant, i'll email you at some point. i'm being internet lazy. I don't have a soundcloud or anything I just fuck around.

so. guyz. I'm going on my trip from tomorrow to june 2nd. Going to London. yep. peep my feed k
anybody have any suggestions what to do? i've asked already, but more ideas is nice.
gonna try and ride the train to Paris too.

Jgonz: have a good trip to London! It's an awesome city. Except maype Oxford street, it is very busy and stressful. London has lots of great little green parks in the city, make sure you eat some sandwiches in one. Also, you should take a walk along the Thames past the museum of Modern art and towards the city centre. Lots of beautiful architecture to see, and weird people to meet. If you like hippie stuff and markets you should take the tube to Camden.

Fuck yeah, NATURE! I like that crab. I got back from my vacation to the outer banks and I went on a couple piers...I put some photos up on Instagram. Lots of clear nosed skates, skates/rays and sharks. I felt like Ed being on a pier. There are no piers where I'm at, as far as I know of anyway. Catalina island always looks awesome. I remember hearing about great whites being there, that freaks me out.

Tenant: I liked your song.

JGonz: Have a fun and safe trip. This exhibition looks cool.

this skatepark is right by the thames, lots of good skaters hang there, it's right by lots of nightclubs, concert venues and restaurants. Pretty awesome spot.

The photo n caption where your goal was to jump off the rock n swim back was rad... Little accomplishments like that feel so good whenever you\'re hurt.

it\'s kinda weird now that jgonz isn\'t posting every day.
Posted By: emilie on June 17th, 2013 at 01:43PM PST
Have fun Jgonz!! you should skate!
Posted By: Josiah on June 17th, 2013 at 09:32PM PST
hell yes! So happy for Daniel going pro!! So WELL deserved! His pro model looks super good. His skating combined with his sunny personality is a deadly combo. He is going to sky rocket into space. I`m predicting new hights of magazine cover for this dude.
