Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was fairly low-key with time spent working out and running errands. The weather was perfect on Sunday (sunny, warm, and not windy) so a friend and I spent some time at the beach.
Guyout Designs Splashguard (REI) – I love my Nalgene water bottles for how simple they are and how much volume they hold, but there is a functionality issue with drinking while moving. These little inserts solve that and make drinking out of a Nalgene considerably easier.
Donating blood – Okay, so I’m not a ghoul and I also know that the history is complicated, but I first donated blood when I was 17 and have tried to donate regularly since. <1% of the US population has my blood type, so I figure…every little bit helps? And in any case, I always chat with interesting people at the donation stations.
Shoreline Cafe – One of the first places I ate out at in Santa Barbara and their burger and fries are simple and delicious. I will also testify that their fish tacos and margarita are excellent; all of which are best enjoyed with your feet in the sand on the back patio.
Have a good week!
