Pendleton | photography by Aaron Sawyer
Spending the weekend on the Oregon Coast is relaxing...Spending it with your family is absolutely priceless. This weekend my brother and sister in-law flew into Oregon from Hawaii with my nephew Luca, joining myself as well as my younger Sister, Mom and Dad. As kids we grew up visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon almost every Summer. It's been over a decade since we have all had the time to come out for a visit together as one family so this weekend was extra special.
As a native of the Northwest it seemed appropriate to stop in at the Pendleton outlet just down the street from our cabin. To my surprise - among all of the Aztec printed blankets, fleeces and button downs - my eyes went straight to a tiki printed shirt and short suit hanging on a rack in the back of the store. Surely this wasn't Pendleton I thought...But it was! I was looking directly at their Surf Pendleton line that actually started back in the late 1960's. Apparently the Beach Boys (originally called the "Pendletone's) sported these classic, wool button down surf shirts on their album covers. After all of these years in Los Angeles how did I NOT know this!? Initially I was tempted to buy the matching blue top and bottom pieces but instead decided to buy the blue shirt and the red shorts for contrast. Thanks to my lovely brother and spur-of-the-moment photographer Aaron we grabbed some snaps of this beachy-king look. SURF'S UP!
