I really wish I could post pictures from the I Phone.
First Last Friday was my wedding anniversary and hubs woke me up At 5:00sh in the morning,to surf! His plans were to surf and then go out and have a nice lunch at a place called Sabatinos.
So we were in the water at 6:45 and surfed till about 9 am... Surf was again not the greatest. Water was warm and clean and the vibe was good!
I caught 1 fun right and again some close outs. Hubs came outside with me but was catching waves inside....He is still not comfortable catching outside. I saw him take one nice ride with good form! I cheared for him from the outside!
We also were surrounded by 4-5 SUP's that all of a sudden multiplied from 1 to like 5! They were cool to me when I went after waves they backed off. But poor hubs inside every time he went after a wave ..... A paddled boarder was already on it.
Waves were about 2-3 and the wind picked up right before we got out! It got very bumpy and hard to paddle out.
When we got out my friend Irma was running in for a quick session before she had to go to work! I saw her catch a fun long right.
We also saw a few other friends and then I got dressed and we went to hubs local bar for some bloody Mary's... Nothing like a liquid breakfast after surf..;-)
Then went to a friends house for a bit (we get to pet/house sit for her this comming weekend) yes less than 5 miles from the beach!!!
Then we hit Sabatinos had a nice bottle of wine and an amazing sausage pasta dish!
I had a very nice Anniversary day! Hubs did good planning it out! Later I made dinner and we rented some movies from redbox!
Then Saturday I woke up early again to meet my friend Artie to surf and do a beach trash pick up.
Artie wanted to surf at 7 am... Her employer organized a beach clean up from 9-11 am
So I get up early again , make the drive to HB state beach. I have never surfed here and we were just right of the river mouth.
Wow what a work out, long walk from the car to the water... That hike in sand carrying Mo, was a lil tougher than I thought! Than the paddle to get outside was a lil farther than I thought too, plus I was tired from the previous day events.
Surf conditions a lil better than Fridays..water still clean and warm... But still not a lot of shape to the waves... I got one nice left and again a few close outs. One was so bumpy I could not stand up for the longest time.. I almost was washed off my board my body was pushed off the side .... But I held on and almost at he end I did stand up and rode for a minute..... It was crazy! I laughed so hard after!
Artie rode a wave inside but it didn't take her in all the way. Her board hit her chin and she was bleeding... But thankfully it was not bad at all.
We did the beach clean up. I filled up a big heavy bag and I took a second small bag. Again what a workout walking on that sans and picking up trash for 2 hours! We had a nice pile of trash when we were done! I really wish people would pick up after their selves!! I also think all surfers and anyone who has a love for the ocean should participate in beach cleanups!
Well that's it for now... Was suppose to surf Sunday but I needed to do some chores and was told I surfed a lot this week! Which cost $$ for gas and parking ... So I took a few days off.. But I think I'm going to surf 6 days in a row starting tomorrow ( (International Surf Day)
Plus Friday - Monday house sitting close to beach... Hopefully get a few sunset surf in as well!
