Stay Cation Day 4

I was suppose to go back home on Saturday, But Sunday looked like it was gonna be a much better surf day, So Laurie invited me to stay another night.

So it is now Sunday..and the day I am suppose to go back home.

I am woken up by a very loud motor! I FB Laurie( Yes that is how lazy I was.. didn't get up and walk upstairs and ask..we were both ON FB in the same house, HA! My bed was so comfy, just didn't want to get out) and ask if that was a boat???.. because she lives on an island..and that sounded a lot like our boat motor when we owned a boat! She said no it was the guy who lives across the street, he has muscle cars and it is what he does on weekends. Well that is a joy to wake up to on Weekends. FUNNY her neighborhood is sooo Quiet on the weekdays..but I heard a lot of people up early on the weekends.

We get up and have some toast and string cheese for breakfast. We get our Coffee at 7 11 and head to Bolsa.

Everyone was gonna meet at tower 17. So we went down. Eric was there and said Kelly was out already. It really was looking a bit crowded.BUT the waves looked fun.

Laurie likes tower 23 so we head there. Her Crew is all there. She has not seen them in a while. I met a few of them before. Real nice guys. I think only one guy went out with us the rest either were just coming in or just came to look. THEY all gave her HELL for coming so late.. Laurie likes to sleep in. BUT she works hard so she is entitled.. and Seriously she lives right across from the Beach.. so she can.
We go and look and not crowded at all. Waves were a little smaller. Looked to be 2 -3 and mellow rollers. So we decide to suit up and go out. THEN my friend Rebecca shows up. I have never personally met her before. BUT funny she lives inland by me. We belong to the same surf club. We have tried to meet up to surf before. BUT it never worked out. She drove out here and we were able to finally surf together.
So it was me Laurie and Rebecca. I caught 3 waves. ONE was big. I thought that was gonna crash right on top of me. BUT it didn't, and ended up being a real fun and fast ride. Ironically the waves were hard to catch. THEY looked like they were gonna be huge, and break and you would paddle and paddle and paddle and nothing.... most of them broke on shore. BUT It was my best day surfing out of the last couple days.... and again The weather was amazing..Surf was so mellow, wind stayed away. I could have stayed out all day...BUT "Murphy's Law" I have to be at a Birthday lunch my husbands family was throwing for me and his uncle. SO I could only be out for a limited time. AND Laurie had to go into work.. Isn't that how it always seems to be? Rebecca had to get out early too, so she gets out about 20 minutes before we do. That day I got 3, Nothing too spectacular..and Rebecca I think got 3.. and I know Laurie got 2 or 3. So not bad.. especially for the short amount of time we had..and the waves were hard to catch.

Well after an hour and a half. I take Laurie back to her place.

I can't believe I spent all this time with my friend and we have not one picture together. So I really wanted to post a picture of the Hostess with the Mostess..This picture was taken on Christmas of us! I LOVE THIS GIRL! SHE SO ROCKS! But if you go back a few post you will see her again..All I am gonna say is.."It's a Head!!!" HAHAHA. IF you read my post last spring about our annual camping trip. YOU would get it and THIS is the same Laurie.

I head home for my Birthday Lunch/Dinner. On the drive home I heard it was postponed another hour.. I could have surfed more!! But that is ok I needed to get home unpack and I took a LONG HOT BATH. We had Fried Turkey and salad and mashed potatoes and stuffing. HA you would have thought it was Thanksgiving..and A really Yummy Chocolate Cake with Bavarian creme filling.

Then I went home and crashed..

Monday... even though I was still on Vacation.. I cleaned up my house and did some laundry and made a nice homemade meal. So nothing too exciting to post about Monday. SO I just thought I would throw it in at the end here... NEXT POST DAY 6 of my Staycation and my BIRTHDAY SURF!..That was a fun day... again.. stay tuned!


  1. love the staycation series... keep them coming! yes, i'm taking a break from studying and reading up on blogs... breaks are very important!!

    even if you just catch three waves, i always tell myself, "At least you got your feet wet." life is so much better when you're in the ocean instead of a drying piece of jerky

  2. you got the perfect "winter" weather for your vacation! I love winter sunsets better as they are so crisp and more colorful than summer ones
