Adventures by the Sea is owner Frank Knight’s love letter to Monterey Bay. As an avid cyclist, kayaker, and surfer in his youth, Frank decided to share the gift of the bay by providing land- and sea-activity rentals for tourists. But, what started out as a small bike-rental shop frequented by local hotel guests eventually transformed into a four-location recreational company that now offers kayaking, bicycling, SUP paddling, and surrey-carriage rentals and tours.

Bicycle renters can cruise along 17-Mile Drive and the rocky shorelines of Pacific Grove, while surrey-carriage rentals provide a low-key communal pedaling adventure for up to four riders. Patrons can also enjoy the serene environment of Monterey Peninsula as they glide through the waters of Cannery Row and Stillwater Cove—both part of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary—on the company’s kayaks and standup paddleboards (SUP). During tours, knowledgeable guides rattle off facts about the area while pointing out its wildlife, such as harbor seals lounging on the rocks and otters snapping pictures of kayakers.

Along with providing land and water activities, Adventures by the Sea helps guests build stronger relationships with one another through their local group adventures, which include scavenger hunts. When customers are ready to invest in their own trustworthy gear, the company’s pro shop helps them stock up on boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, and paddleboards from brands such as Surftech, Naish Hawaii, and Paddle Surf Hawaii.

Like most massage therapists, David Armstrong is interested in ridding clients of pain and increasing their range of motion. But unlike the others, he doesn't knead the part of the body experiencing pain; rather, he relies on neuromuscular therapy to discover and treat the source of the pain. He employs structural analysis, trigger-point therapy, and myofascial release, which has helped clients recover from very serious traumas. David also loves helping people de-stress during relaxing massages.

He learned his techniques from massage guru Venice Sullivan, an early pioneer of neuromuscular therapy who groomed him to follow in her footsteps. David now assists Venice in teaching neuromuscular therapy to new massage-therapy students. Clients who wish to supplement their bodywork sessions may also reach out to acupuncture specialist Glenn Sadowsky, who clients with natural medicine and acupuncture at Optimal Health Acupuncture and Bodywork. In addition to easing chronic and acute pain, while managing weight-loss goals, endocrine disorders, and asthma/allergies for his clients, he also shares herbal-supplement benefits with them.

In 1981, Rabia Erduman's search for truth led her from Istanbul, her country of origin, to an ashram in India, where a meditative spiritual experience amid thousands of people helped her discover that life offers each individual many options and that change is possible. She went on to earn a bachelor's degree in psychology and become a certified hypnotherapist, and now assists others who are struggling toward self-discovery. In addition to facilitating change via the subconscious mind, Erduman performs bodywork, such as reiki energy therapy and therapeutic massage.

Erduman leads self-awareness workshops and is the author of Veils of Separation, a modern-day fairy tale narrated from the perspective of the inner child. She has also created several CDs that guide people toward true happiness. Her relaxation CD mimics the sound of the ocean and the rhythm of waves, relaxing the mind so it can become fully still and attuned to the subtleties of a seashell's life story.

A heartbeat, a grasping hand, a tiny yawn, a smile??these are the moments that make the long wait of expectant parenthood worthwhile. Yet often they go unnoticed. The singular snapshots provided by traditional sonogram technology offer only brief glimpses into the future. Lance Dursi, creator of Scanbabies, sought to give parents something more??something more personal and more reassuring. Initially an obstetric sonogram consultant, Lance worked until he gained registration from the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers. Now, with nearly 30 years of baby-scanning practice and thousands of baby scans under his belt, Lance records fetal inhabitants with 3-D and 4-D technology, yielding prints, digital images, and videos of the sonograms for later family viewing and projection onto Times Square billboards.
