There's really more to say today than can be crammed into one measly blog, so I'll give you some bullet points. But first... Look at that rad picture a nice lady named Nisa took of me on the beach last night. Sweet.
Now for the bullet points:
1) Was gonna buy myself a waterproof watch for Christmas. Then discovered that my favorite watch ever - a red-faced Swiss Army Victorinox from the Sundance Catalog - is waterproof. Presto! Surfing Watch achieved!
2) Got booties: My BFF M.M. bought these superb round toe Infiniti bamboo fiber booties for me as a birthday gift. It took many trips to get them, but get them I finally did.
3) Took the booties for a spin at sunset last night. Made me realize how much I tolerate being uncomfortable and then wondered where else in my life am I doing the equivalent of surfing in bitterly cold water without my booties?
4) Went out again just before sunset tonight and it was ecstasy, booties and all. Caught the best ride of my surfing life so far. Not feeling cold may make a huge difference.
5) The water was silver blue glass under the setting sun and the waves were 0-1 feet. That means small - really small. But perfect for me.
6) In my post-surfing ecstatic bliss, I watched the final light of dusk before driving home.
7) Without strapping my board to my car.
8) And heard it fly off the roof as I rode home on the 10 Freeway.
9) Yep. Lost my board.
10) Um huh. Brian's on his way right now to check if it's still there. Stay tuned...
