SurfGirl: Issue 49


I love any chance I get to slip back to the time when we went to Oregon. I don't know what it was about that trip specifically, but I think about it anytime I'm having a 'I wish I could start over' kind of day. I think it helps me remember the version of myself I prefer to be most (and sometimes to be reminded that a better version exists!). It is nice when a vacation can reveal another side of us we might not have been aware of otherwise. 

Anyways, I like the way Louise Searle, editor of SurfGirl Magazine, put together a few of the pictures and words we took home from our time up in the Pacific North West this past summer. You can find these things in this winter's issue of SurfGirl. They sell it on their website and I believe at Barnes & Noble as well. It's always a little funny reading your own words after they've been edited by someone else. It's not something I'm familiar with around here, but I've noticed that when my writing appears in SurfGirl, a publication assembled in the UK, I always sound a little British (I've never said 'wended' before...I had to look it up ;). 

Also, you may want to stop by the SurfGirl Beach Boutique for some holiday shopping. I love this little pestemal (I had to look up the meaning of that word too...it's a Turkish bath towel!). I bet it would make a nice, light beach towel or maybe a picnic blanket.

  1. The article looks lovely, really evocative, you write so well. I like the little touches of your handwritten journalling around the edges too. We're all about the wending over here, it's the best way to travel. CJ xx

  6. So great that you get to share your stories from Oregon in SurfGirl! Looks and sounds like you had an amazing time there. And I'd imagine that it would be a little odd to be edited to sound British :-) I've missed stopping by and reading your words! Hope you are well Devon and that you had a great Thanksgiving.
