Weekend guide to Oceanside, CA and more recent features

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For The National, Amtrak’s onboard magazine I researched and wrote a weekend guide to Oceanside, California. 


 

For October, a beautiful beer meets lifestyle and travel online magazine I connect the dots between Border X Brewing’s Mexican-inspired beers and community-building. READ IT HERE.

Also, super flattered that October’s editor included the piece we worked on together as one of her favorite pieces this year. Check out the full thread at the link below:


 

And for Lonely Planet, where I cover San Diego travel updates, a guide to Christmas activities in the area, including beachside ice skating, holiday menus and more. READ IT HERE.

Just your average Thursday in San Diego

 

It’s been feeling a lot like summer this week, and this photo of my Thursday lunch time surf session certainly captures the sun we’re so lucky to have so much of in San Diego. The water was unusually warm, thanks to El Nino. The sand beneath me stung a little from the heat. Random strands of seaweed tangoed with my board leash, a sea turtle peeked its head up at my 2 o’clock from the shimmering sea. It was a sublime Thursday afternoon.

This is Solana Beach, my go-to spot to watch the waves whenever I’m in North County. Last weekend, I was maxed out of my favorite barre class and had some time to putz around while I waited for the next one. To fuel up, I picked up a Salted Caramel Latte from Lofty Coffee on Cedros and walked over to Fletcher Cove Park, perched on one of the table and admired the waves.*

*If I wasn’t in Solana Beach for my a.m. barre class, I’d be waiting for a table at this popular brunch spot.
