Yacht Rock: Yachty By Nature at Sea Legs at the Beach

Yachty By Nature  is a Yacht Rock band in Southern California.
They call themselves the Captains of Smooth Yacht Rock. They are a fun and entertaining band playing soft rock from the 70's and 80's and one hell of a good time.   We finally got a chance to see them the other day at Sea Legs at the Beach in Bolsa Chica and hope to see them again soon.   

Sea Legs at the Beach is a cool beach venue.  It was like a fun beach party.

Captain Carl is the Captain of this collection of groovy dudes in nautical hats.  He plays the keyboards and captains this fun journey into music from the past.  (You know you are starting to get old when the music you grew up with is becoming retro.)  I would describe Captain Carl as being like a really great character that you would expect Will Ferrell to play.  I mean that as a great compliment.  He is an absolute blast and I found him both hilarious and talented.  Captain Carl is the man!

I absolutely feel in love with this band a couple songs into their first set.  

The Dr. is in.  Rocking the sax and lead vocals on some of the songs.  

Getting his groove on.

Big Wave Dave is having a blast on the drums

And then there is Scotty McYachty. (Best Yacht name ever).
Killing on the locals for a majority of the songs.

This cat even walks around with swagger like he belongs at the Yacht Club.

I  have posted several videos of this crew in action on my Pineappleman facebook page.  Follow it below

Check out their awesome promo video below.  The second I saw this You tube video I knew I had to see them in person.  

You know you want to get Yachty!

A Pineappleman Tiki Adventure: The Ocean Palms Resort Carlsbad

Hop into the Pineappleman's Tiki Adventure Jeep for a trip down the coast and a Staycation at The Ocean Palms Beach Resort in Carlsbad.

The  Ocean Palms Beach Resort is great little resort that is steps away from the beach and one of our traditional mexican restaurant stops on the way to Tiki Oasis called El Norte.   We had stopped to take pictures of the Tikis outisde before and I had always wanted to stare there.  

So in the Fall of 2017 I decided to surprise my wife with a little weekend Adventure in Carlsbad that included a Wine Bar, The Barrel Republic for lunch and our favorite Mexcian Restaurant for dinner.  

 The Ocean Palms is cute little getway with a tropical feel. 
 Check out the tropical wall art in our room.   Plus it had the coolest shower ever that had three shower heads that covered your whole body from different angles that has ruined all regular showers forever.

Here are some of the Tikis from around the Resort.

On the Way home we stopped at the Royal Hawaiian in Laguna Beach,  but that is a Tiki Adventure for another blog

Tiki Oasis 2017 Part 3 The Music, The Hula Girls, The Untouchables, APE,'s

Before Tiki Oasis even started I knew that there was one room Part that I had to go to.  My wife volunteered to watch the baby.  I knew that if I went to this one room my Tiki Oasis 2017 was going to be a success.

Of coure there are always a couple of Surprises at Tiki Oasis
The infamous Mr Tiki Head was ready to party

I'm a huge Devo fan and have seen Devo many times.  So when I heard there was going to be a  band doing a Lounge version of Devo I was all in.

MongoLounge was very entertaining.

Here they are taking a break in the middle of a song

 APE Featuring the live carvings of Crazy AL was back on the main stage this year

Then what I had been waiting for The Hula Girls

And the Untouchables in a room party.  So freaking awesome.  My weekend was complete.

Tiki Oasis 2017 Part 2 The Pineapple Baby first Tiki Oasis

This Tiki Oasis was going to be a brand new experience for us. We have invited and hung out with many friends over the years, but this year we had a new special guest, which meant less room parties and a different experience.   My wife couldn't wait to get him all dressed up for a weekend of fun.   

The Pineapple Baby got into the spirit of things right away.

"Hey this place is pretty cool" he said . 
 Or at least that is what his smile says.

A new sitcom.  Two bald guys and a Cute Blond

Babies make the best undercover spies at an International Intrigue event

I thought it was the bomb
