I remember Mooch saying something about that redhead at MBK after the P.I.F. paddle
Was the background in the last 2 pics just coincidence?

Eric, you took the exact words outta my mouth lol!!  :smt044 :smt044

Brothers, I'm sorry that I too couldn't make it out as I was stuck working all day. It looks like y'all had a very special gathering/remembrance. Much love and respect to Aaron and to the entire Big Sur crew.

around 11:30 I was fishing near the yellow can.  In the distance Phil was performing a burnt sage ritual.  Watching the smoke float off, feeling the swell rock my kayak was amazingly peaceful.  There are questions that can never be answered but peace to all touched by this.

on the beach a passerby walked up and asked if this was the same guy that worked at the shop.  We told him it was, and he was shocked and saddened.  He said he had recently purchased a yak from Aaron and was talking to him about rigging it for fishing.  Andy sent him to NCKA.

Fishing was tough but I brought in a 30 and 25 inch ling, Nathan brought in a 24 incher.  Hopes for the future are good, released 6 lings, most the size of a standard issue mackerel.  I lost my yellow squeeze wenoka dive knife, but hey the sea gives and takes.

As to the redhead in the background of the pics, I don't know what you are talking about  :smt003
