Surfrider Volunteers Share Their Love of the Ocean!
This Whalefest weekend at the Wharf brought together curious visitors and Ocean activists and the result was Magic! Educating the kids and parents in the photo above are Surfrider volunteers (l-r), Alicia Miller, Dana Angelo and Tyler Gerome. We found out how smart the kids are…and how people really want to protect the Ocean once awesome volunteers give them a little education and tips on how to help. Those smiles lasted all day at the Surfrider table…and Mother Ocean was very happy, too. 🙂

Why is it so hard to sit still ?
It’s easy to get distracted with the overload of noise and technology that surrounds most of us computers , tablets , mobile phones , Ipods , instant messaging , skype, facetime, TV-radio etc…. It is simply overload that never ends. Most of my clear thinking comes from being outdoors or shifting focus to simple tasks or activities. What you do can influence people in a positive or negative way. Make time each day to clear your mind through exercise and listening with out head phones. If you want a mental workout . Sit still for 10-30 minutes a day and see if you can reduce a sense of urgency that you should be doing something else , planning for something in the future , or worrying about something that has already happened. If you’re a type A -Achievement oriented person it will test your true mental strength. Breathing exercises will help you focus on getting centered . Make a paradigm shift that sitting still is the opposite of doing nothing . It is a productive way to improve focus and clarity in what you do. Most every time with out fail you will feel better . do it. Brent Allen
“Collect moments , not things” Christmas is a great time to reflect on whats important and whats not important. Instead of buying a bunch of things for friends and family -just spend time with them (be present ). Take time to talk and ask questions with those older than you. Place a high value on those that came before you . It is always a great history lesson . Instead of gifts make some donations to charitable organizations you appreciate. We have a list of ones we support and promote on the website . Be Grateful for what you have and spend more time outdoors with family and friends .
Merry Christmas -Brent and Kelley Allen
