"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Margaret Mead

You may have noticed that we’ve been absent over the past weeks, getting much needed R&R from another crazy, wild & wonderful year.

In our constant pursuit of living a more nature oriented & balanced lifestyle, we follow the birds south to the warm waters of Baja in winter. This very special journey brings our year closure & consummates the season. It tunes us in with seasonal cycles & nature’s circadian rhythm. This “hibernation” of sorts helps us look inward & reflect on our struggles, achievements, lessons learned & overall company direction.

Much of our blessings, intentions & prayers for the new season start here & boy have we conjured up some audacious goals for 2023. More on that soon.


In the course of our complex internet marketing approach from the trenches of cyberspace, we recently discovered that Alila/Hyatt is now offering a beautiful glamping experience in Ventana Big Sur:

The space looks amazing like only Hyatt could deliver. It's a significant move for a leading multi-national hospitality company with 1100 hotels and all-inclusive properties in 69 countries across six continents.

Here in San Diego, a quick internet search brings up over a dozen glamping options across the county, as well as multiple paid ads inciting you to book now. Everything from glamping by the beach, glamping at a winery, yoga glamping and even an Alpaca glamping experience.

As part of our efforts towards encouraging responsible travel and environmental stewardship, we are active participants in The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace. Waste that is not disposed of properly affects natural habitats, wildlife, rivers, and waterways that eventually makes its way down to our oceans and seas.


We did our best to capture the EPIC experience of our recent 2 week adventure down the Baja coastline into a 3 minute video. There was so much of this rich experience that we had to leave out.

We’ve traveled to various parts of Mexico over the years and never cease to be amazed at the unique beauty and potential of this destination. After all these years visiting many parts of Mexico, we’re always finding amazing new places to explore.

The San Diego Mountains are the start of the local watershed. Rain and snow accumulation in the higher elevations play a key role in supplying San Diego reservoirs with water. Most of the city's water supply originates from these mountains. We have a responsibility to keep the local watershed clean and to do our part to conserve water.
