Our friend and coworker, Jim celebrated his 60th birthday with a day full of outdoor sports. Since he’s Irish, it was only fitting the celebration was on St. Patrick’s Day. The day was perfectly planned and scheduled chock full of various outdoor activities, one right after another. Jim outdid everyone, completing each event with energy to spare while the rest of us played tag team trying to keep up with him.
The morning started with open ocean swimming, surfing, and paddle boarding in Malibu.
Followed by kayaking with friends.
Although some gave it their best shot, no one capsized
Slightly more dramatic than in real life
It’s good to have friends that enjoy the same hobbies you do
We then drove ahead of the group and hiked a little ways down a nice trail and played on a rope swing waiting for the rest to bike by.
It’s amazing how just a simple rope swing can keep you entertained for hours…it’s fun to be a kid again
The final activity was a 4 mile hike in Temescal Canyon ending at Jim’s house for drinks, food, and storytelling.
Coming down the final switchbacks of Temescal Canyon
We thought it was a great way to celebrate a birthday, we only hope we will be as fit and energetic when we turn 60! Happy Birthday to Jim!
