Davenport Beach, Davenport, California

Updated: Aug 8, 2018


Davenport Beach is not only beautiful, but also a premier sea glass collecting spot. I didn't find anything significant here. I found a lot of small common pieces but this is where people risk their lives to find highly prized art sea glass


Story has it the San Vicente river overflooded in the 1970's. The Lundberg Art Glass studio is located next to the river and when it overflooded it took all their scrap art glass which was located behind the art studio down the river. Now it is being washed up tumbled from the ocean and people are finding really unique and cool pieces of seaglass to this day!


I had better luck at the next beach over, Shark Fin Cove but mostly only found common sea glass and some little pieces of art sea glass. 


Also if you walk on the beach there is a river that exits at the other end of the beach as well which has a cool little path going up to some abandoned train tracks. if you follow the train tracks you will arrive at Shark Fin Cove


Cool part about Davenport Beach is it seems to be totally dog friendly. Lots of people brought their dogs down their and there are no signs regarding dogs. I was able to let Wander off the leash and throw his ball right on the beach. There is a garbage can in the parking lot, don't leave your trash on the beach.

A message from the Editor

“Vanning Ain’t No Joke.” This is all my friend Brad Parker said to me after showing him photos of this 1978 Dodge Tradesman 200 I was going to buy to live in. I had no idea what this meant at the time. I had no idea what I was doing. That little saying stuck in my head. I didn’t know why he had said that originally but I sure do now. Living in a van forces you outside your comfort zone. You are constantly learning and growing. You are always facing problems you have to overcome. You are always moving, always going...

Vanning definitely Ain’t No Joke!!!

 

After 4 years of living in a van, many people have told me they live in vans because of me or that I have changed their lives. That’s where this magazine comes from. I thought to myself. If I could change peoples lives just from living my own life and show it on Instagram then how can I do this on a bigger scale? Not only do I have tons of stories and information to share but I know lots of people who also do. 

 

I called my brother Neal Eisler and asked him if they wanted to start a van life magazine with me. We could change peoples lives I told them. After getting them on board, we got to work to make something we could be proud of...something that could not only change peoples lives but change peoples mindsets. I am really excited to share this first issue with everyone and can’t wait to share future issues we haven’t written yet.
