gone to sea

I'm finally off to dive at Sipadan, Malaysia! We've been planning this trip since January this year, and after a hectic whirl of coordinating dates, confirming flights, comparing accomodation, reviewing operators, securing our permits, haggling over costs, and getting leave from work approved, we're finally good to go. All that stands before us are 2 flights, a 1-hour drive, and another another on a boat, and...paradise underwater.
Thought I would sign off from blogging for a week with this sunny editorial from the June issue of US Vogue, classic beach girl shoot from the magazine starring the very sunny Blake Lively. I know Vogue has a habit of anointing It Girls without much success, but I genuinely like the uncomplicated surfer girl appeal of Blake Lively. And she is perfectly suited for this editorial.
And gosh, I love articles by Hamish Bowles - vivid, full of wit and heart. I liked the account of his four days in the Outdoor Survival School in Boulder, and his crash course in surfing was a good read too.
