As my last couple of posts have pointed out, this has been a busy summer on the personal front, for myself, my new wife GG and our two dogs. We kicked off the summer with an epic month-long road trip that took us out to Oregon to get married. Much to our joy and surprise, we also learned mere days before hitting the road that we’ve got a child en route—which we call the belly bean (or BB for short). At the risk of just piling on the excitement, we also decided this would be our moment to reboot our new life in a different location.
And so, now we’re neck deep in the process of moving the home base from our beloved Savannah to the ethereal shores of Los Angeles. It’s proving quite the adventure already. I drove GG out ahead of time so she could house sit for a friend and get a jump start on the house hunt. In the meantime, I flew back to tie up loose ends here in Georgia, and should make the permanent leap by the end of September.
All of that is the long way of saying that Point Shoot Travel has received only sporadic attention over the last few months. Equally negelected have been my on-assignment travels, which are the source of many of my stories and photos. With all the excitement, I’ve had to regretfully pass on a handful travel opportunities. Among those was a chance to visit Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula during the now legendary whale shark season around Isla Mujeres (a total bucket-list adventure that I’ve yet to experience). Next year!
At any rate, Los Angeles awaits, and I fully expect the move to bring with it unprecedented adventure and travel opportunities. How could it not in the land of big-wave surfing, desert dirt biking, movie stars and food trucks. Just thinking about it makes me all giddy!
