Tonight was a special day for me because I had my Dad and his partner Gretchen out on the beach with us. They came all the way from NYC to hang out before we leave for Chile next Thurs. Did I say Thurs.? THURSDAY!! OH SH*&^T...I have one or two things to do before then.

Wallace J Nichols has a TEDx talk that I think is well worth the watch!

Gretchen finds a friend on the beach. 

After we found a collective 5 pounds of trash in 20 min. on a windy winter beach, we watched the sun set behind the pacific. Gretchen said that it was much better than seeing the sun slip behind Weehaken, NJ back home. 

The last few pictures are a family photo album of sorts. These photographs capture one of my favorite sunsets.....ever.
