My friend Dave and I headed out this past weekend in Redondo Beach on a glorious (but hot) day. Enjoy the video! And please (pretty please!!) subscribe to my Youtube channel!
I love reading FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) blogs, I really do!
There are times where I definitely feel a little
insanely jealous inspired to put the pedal to the metal and speed down the Financial Independence highway, no matter how many fun roadside attractions might be whizzing by that I refuse to spend money on, and times where I just need to cruise with the top down on the convertible and take my sweet-ass time getting there, savoring all roadside attractions that the journey might have to offer.
This month I’ve been doing a little cruising. Awe yeahhhhh! I’ve shed some baggage over the last couple of weeks and I’m feeling energetic and healthy. And you know how much I appreciate good health. This month is about playing. I want to be a little wilder…a little more spontaneous.
As someone once wrote in a comment to me, “there is a season to save, and a season to spend.” I’m paraphrasing. 🙂 This is my “season” to cut loose a little.
One of the things I love about LA is the beach and the ocean. I’m very hashtag blessed to be living in the location I am where you don’t have to fight billions of other cars on the 405 freeway to get to those awesome natural resources. I’ve always been a water girl and no matter where I’ve lived in life (Detroit & Seattle) I’ve always been surrounded by some kind of water. It’s just so soothing.
One of the activities I love doing on the water is kayaking. While some people love SUP more, I find I can relax more with a more stable floating device, plus I love being down close to the water and feeling like I’m gliding. Someday I’d love to live close enough to some body of water where I can store my own kayak, but for now, I’ll settle on paying the not-too-shabby price of $15/hour for a rental.
