Adventuring – Tiki Oasis 2014

Hello Friends! I actually left the HOUSE! It’s an amazing feat and you should totally pat me on the back. I am not kidding.

 *This post has a ton of photos – I will NOT be mad if you skip to the bottom to see them*

I went on a little adventure to San Diego which is delightful this time a year. I highly recommend it.

The event is Tiki Oasis – a Tiki themed concert, dance party, fashion show, art installment, adult summer camp. Those are my words, not theirs. Please don’t be mad at me if you disagree. My description is crap so I just thought I would SHOW YOU with ALL THE PHOTOS. You are welcome.

I don’t think that I could describe it perfectly or even accurately because this was my very first year. My first impression and the most common answer I gave was that it was OVERWHELMING. There were so many things going on at once so if I was at one end something spectacular going on at the other end of the event.

Go Go dancing babies! NO BIG DEAL!

There were CRAFTS!

There were CRAFTS!

There were book clubs, craft classes, beauty school, live music, burlesque, car show, lectures, DJS and somewhere in the middle my brain just stopped and exploded. Done.

This kid is disappointed in me for missing book club.

I saw a lecture by Rolly Crump – and he gets sweeter and funnier every time I see him speak. He even let me take his photo (I’m sure he think’s I’m a lunatic but I LOVE HIM SO)

Once upon a long ago I worked at a sleepover summer camp on Catalina Island and over and over I couldn’t shake this feeling that I was back there with our campers. We woke up the camp with music at 9:30 AM too!

My FAVORITE part though was spending time with my friends. The ones far away, the ones close to home and all the new ones in-between. Oh, and I got to wear ALL MY MUUMUUS, that was my second favorite.

KIT – See you next summer!

  1. What fantastic shots! It was our first year too, and I think your photos provide an excellent visual record of a nearly indescribable weekend.
