Hangin’ in Humboldt on the CCT

We woke up in our boat-in campsite feeling like we were in the jungle. Hummingbirds zoomed through the clearing above our tent, chirping and buzzing overhead. The morning fog accumulated in dew drops on the leafy walls around us. We packed up and took a last look...

  • We 💙 @oceanfriendlyrestaurants like @harvestcafeventura that are doing their part to reduce single-use plastics and protect the coast! (swipe for more pics) Reunited for a few hours, we were beach walking on the #CaliforniaCoastalTrail, picking up trash like straws 🙄🥤when we noticed a @surfrider ashtray sponsored by Harvest Cafe at the Ventura river mouth. Stoked on their support for the coast, we decided to check them out and were SO delighted by their tasty food and lack of pesky plastic! 🥗🍽😁 If you work in the food service industry check out #OceanFriendlyRestaurants for ways that you can help stem the flow of plastics into the sea, and if you’re going out to eat look for an OFR near you! Way to go Harvest Cafe and @surfridervc 👊🌊🌍✨

  • Coastal cleanup success this weekend! Microtrash totally sucks👎Check out all these "nurdles" (pic on right) that were hiding in the sand. Nurdles are tiny lentil shaped plastic pellets that are used in pre-production plastic manufacturing and packaging. These tiny pieces of trash are confused as food by ocean animals😔Let's help our society cut the #plasticaddiction folks! REFUSE REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE *

  • On Day 96 we made it to Mexico!! 🇲🇽🌀🌞💙 Together, we ran the final stretch of the #CaliforniaCoastalTrail, holding hands until we reached the border fence. Beachgoers in Mexico reached their arms through the fence and we embraced them and each other, letting the tears and smiles flow. "We walked here from Oregon!!" we exclaimed. Then, we were immediately yelled at by border patrol to stay 100 ft back from the fence 😂 Family, friends, and supporters gathered at Border Field State Park for a closing ceremony. There, the City of Imperial Beach, and the County of San Diego presented us with proclamations, officially naming August 4, 2016 MoJo day! We were completely overwhelmed with gratitude for this coastline, each other, and everyone who supported us on our journey. Major thanks to @ca_coastal and the California Coastal Trail Association, who funded our outreach and data collection initiative. And the MOST gratitude for @alisanlovesnature who was making everything happen behind the scenes! Anddd THANK YOU for following our journey and supporting our mission to raise awareness for California Coastal Trail. There is still a lot of work to be done! You can help right now by telling 3 friends about the CCT!! And then get out there and experience this amazingly powerful, beautiful, tranquil, inspiring coastline for yourself on the California Coastal Trail!! Wowzers. Can't believe it's been a whole year!!!!

This will be the last of our daily posts narrating the progress of our hike, but the journey is not nearly over. We are lifetime advocates for coastal access, stewardship, and protection, so stay tuned for more!
