Jeff Brown of Reel Baja

According to my beach fishing friend, Steve Herter, Jeff is a good fly fisherman and guide. I'm not a fly fisherman and haven't gone out with Jeff but will gladly take Steve's word for it. He was out one day and got some good photos of Jeff and a client landing and releasing a nice Rooster. Enjoy.

Marsha's Burros

Our friend Marcia has pet burros. Not really but they come to her house daily, stand at the gate and make all kinds of racket until she comes out with her special bag of treats. So what is the secret thing that Burros love? Wait for it... Gumdrops. Seriously. I happened to be in the neighborhood the other day to witness these goofballs hollering at Marcia for their gumdrops. Who knew?

Sand Masters at the Lord of the Winds

Have you wandered over to the beach lately? It's filling up with wind surfers, kiters, food booths, people and HUGE sand castles. Our very own "Lord of the Winds" tournament organizers have enticed the Travel Channel to cover the event. What is really fun is that they brought a team of sand castle architects. Their first structure is on the beach in front of the Palmas hotel but is being torn down Friday morning to make room for the next one. My buddy Jim Brik and I were watching them finish filming yesterday afternoon. For their promo spot, they had their team stand behind this incredible sand structure and shout "The Travel Channel Moves You!!" I couldn't hear all that was being said but evidently the "crack" sandcastle team misunderstood and thought they were supposed to shout something else. Check out the video for the results.
