On American Thanksgiving, I met a wonderful group of kayak surfers who adopted me for the holiday. Many *thanks* to the extended Northrop family (Isabelle, Dave, Eli, Chuck, Mike, Charlie, Lydia and Sean) for welcoming me into their warm and vibrant home. I’ll be practicing my ping pong skills until we meet again!

To celebrate Lydia’s birthday today, here’s a rare portrait on my photoblog. More pictures from this inspiring trip down the Oregon coast in the days to come…
