A Morning Tour

  Early on Saturday morning when things were quiet I took a stroll around the beach town part of Las Catalinas with my home video camera.   Here is the result.   It is the rainy season, which means everything is lush and green, but nearly every morning is just like this one: sunny,…

Who would have thought...   our Director of Security, Armando Gutierrez, spearheaded the creation of this new heliport at Las Catalinas.   Pretty cool.   Except I am afraid of helicopters.   I'm not going up in one of those things!

The Old City of Las Catalinas

But actually they are from Las Catalinas homeowner JP Boustany, and they are photos of Las Catalinas that he has somehow manipulated to…

Stand Up Paddle Video

Here is a nice video that Martyn Hoffmann made of an early morning paddle trip that he made with Jake Jacobs and myself yesterday morning.   Nice.   Even better was a full moon paddle last night.   No wind, glassy ocean, 85 degree water, balmy air... that was truly magical.   I can't…
