From my local photos archive: A photo of the iconic 1919 WWI era SS Palo Alto, also called the "Cement Ship" because it was constructed with concrete and steel. Towed here in 1930, the Palo Alto has been sitting at the end of this pier that juts from Monterey Bay’s Seacliff Beach and its last use was a fishing platform until deemed a safety hazard. In January 2017, the pounding surf from storms snapped a section of the Palo Alto nearest to shore from the rest of the ship. The SS Palo Alto now serves as an artificial reef for marine life. #california #visitcalifornia #centralcoast #montereybay #aptos #seascapes #seacliffstatepark #beachview #sspaloalto #cementship #artificialreef #cloudscape #landscape #landscapes #landscape_captures #peaceful #yogadestinations #beautifulview #santacruzwaves #santacruzlife #santacruzmountains #sunshine_and_shorelines #iphone6 #iphonephotography #calthentic

"The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It’s not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.” -John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

From my local photos archive: The setting sun highlights Mark Abbott Memorial Lighthouse at Lighthouse Field State Beach Park. On the east side of this park, surfers ride the break known as Steamer Lane, a world-famous surfing destination. On the west side is Its Beach, the main sandy beach of Lighthouse Field State Beach Park. #visitcalifornia #centralcoast #montereybay #santacruz #centralcoastliving #visitsantacruz #santacruzlife #santacruzwaves #santacruzsunset #sunset #sunsets #sunsetporn #sunrise_and_sunsets #sunset_pics #landscape_captures #unlimitedsunset #beautifuldestinations #santacruzmountains #sunshine_and_shorelines #calthentic #iphone6 #ig_world_photoπŸ‘‘ #wonderful_places #oldschoolsantacruz

We learned a lesson last year when we didn't get a crew. This year we got some awesome helpers and the wine is only getting better!

We didn't have the pleasure of doing Nina's tragus piercing, but we did have a ton of fun picking out jewelry for it! She went with a this beautiful gold @bvla tear drop featuring one of our favorites, Zawadi Sapphire. Can't get enough of that gorgeous golden sheen! ✨✨✨ #amorybodyarts #santacruz #santacruzmountains #capitola #aptos #watsonville #sanjose #bayarea #831 #408 #ucsc #ucsantacruz #cabrillocollege #goldjewelry #jewelry #fashion #love #ootd #picoftheday #instagood #piercing #piercings #santacruzpiercing #safepiercing #earpiercing #bvla #teardrop #traguspiercing #cartilagepiercing #sapphire

Pretty pumped to see the branding we did for the Cremer House finally settling in on the front of the buildingβ€”hand painted by our long-time buds over @stokessigns no less! Without a doubt the finest restaurant in the mountains we call home, if you haven't been yet, you're pretty much blowing it! I think this calls for a 🍺. #cremerhouse #weloveourclients #weliketoeat #weliketodrink #whatelseisthere? #signage #branding #logodesign #handpainted #santacruz #felton #santacruzmountains #restaurantsigns #sleeplessmedia

I'm so glad I decided to make the windy drive up to the historic @ridgevineyards located in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. Not only were the panoramic vineyard views amazing, but I really enjoyed tasting through the wines as well.  The 2014 Monte Bello (Bordeaux style blend) was pretty powerful and definitely has some excellent aging potential--I would hold on to this one for at least 10-20 years. #🍷#πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ #winetravels #adventuresinwine #ridgevineyards #santacruzmountains #californiawine #wanderlustandwines
