Lindsey and I haven't had a chance to have an overnighter just us two since Ethan was born. Needless to say, we were stoked to spend a few days just us, exploring and eating in the coastal Sonoma County.
We made it a point to visit Russian River Brewery, but outside of that, the weekend was filled with incredible serendipitous finds. Hog Island Oyster Co. was by far an incredible place and find. We will be going back soon.
Yet another day-trip up to Wrights Lake with the fam.
As we usually do, we went back to my hometown to celebrate July 4th with my family. What was once a hot country day in the Summer where we all did incredibly stupid things (I mean really stupid things - friends' fingers blown off, blown-out windows, and general illegal activity) has since led to a much-scaled down version. But it's still way more fun going back home than most of the 'shows' and CA's "Safe and Sane" overpriced fireworks.
Also at the family ranch, Norah learned how to shoot her first real gun and know the ins-and-outs of that, so that's always cool.
It was pretty hot, so we spent most of the week in my brothers pool.
Had another good interview on Capital Public Radio - Insight. Talking about my recent published Algeria story with Foreign Policy Magazine.
