day off

I decided to join those who had this Monday off and go to the beach. The surf was fun and the ocean washed away a lot of stress.

The Ranch-1973. Mark Andreini and Bob Haakensen paddled a 2 man canoe up from Gaviota, tying it to the kelp before paddling into these beauties.


Not much work today, at least there was sun and surf to fill my idle time.

Not a bad way to go...

February 05, 2011LEE K. HARRINGTON

Headed L.A. Economic Development Corp.

Lee K. Harrington, 64, a businessman who was executive director of the Southern California Leadership Council and the former head of the Los Angeles Economic Development Corp., died Friday near his Hollister Ranch home while surfing off the coast of Santa Barbara County, according to the Santa Barbara County coroner.

Harrington was surfing with friends at St. Augustine Beach, west of Santa Barbara, when one of them noticed he was unconscious on his surfboard, KSBY-TV in Santa Barbara reported. Paramedics were unable to revive him.
According to Santa Barbara County fire officials, Harrington was surfing at St. Augustine Beach on the 14,400-acre ranch west of Gaviota when friends found him unconscious. Officials said Harrington’s companions carried him to shore and administered CPR. Emergency crews arrived at 11:15 a.m. and a CALSTAR medical evacuation helicopter landed on the beach to assist, but authorities said Harrington could not be revived.

In an e-mail to Noozhawk on Saturday, Harrington’s son, Ryan, said his father died doing what he loved.

“After catching two of the best waves of his life, dad passed away doing what he truly loved,” said Harrington, executive director of the Foundation for Girsh Park.

Surf check

Leave the house at dawn, stop for coffee and then down to the coast to see what kind of day the Lord has made.I really enjoy these early mornings, it`s a bonus if there also happens to be a few waves for me besides.
