Up by Gualala is one of my favorite places in the world. My family has been going here for wild dive trips since I was a babe. My dad and uncles have always been madly in love with the ocean, and I grew up hearing stories of their crazy adventures. We have so many good memories on this rugged northern california shoreline- getting to see all my cousins, uncles, aunts and grandparents all together, frying up abalone, all the kids running wild and calling dibs on the coolest loft, exploring tidepools, hot tubbing under the clearest starry skies, and of course getting to take home a big pearly abalone shell to add to the collection. Stoked that we're still carrying on this tradition. Fam time rules.
