I hadn't been home for more than 12 hours from New York, when my hubby and I were on the road to Santa Barbara. He played a gig with Jackson Browne on the ranch where Jackson has an amazing 'completely off the grid' house! Jeff has been Jackson's keyboard player for over 20 years and they are about to embark on another year long tour, but this was a hoedown right on the ocean and such a great segue back in to California life!
My highlight was meeting the incredible top 11 time world champion surfer Kelly Slater... grateful to my friend who captured this moment on film! He even sat in and sung 'Take it Easy' with the band! What an incredible athlete he is.
We ended the day cooking an amazing dinner at Jackson's home...all organic and a group effort with the awesome musician Jonathan Wilson and his lovely girlfriend Abby. Cooking together, drinking wine and sitting at a big table to eat with friends is probably one of my favorite things to do! A beautiful day!
Chatting about NZ surf spots with Kelly Slater...as you do!!!😎
