2 Days of Foggy Surfing!!

Went out surfingTuesday & Wednesday this week.
Yay for two days of surf in a row!!
I thought it was suppose to be hot and sunny and it was where I live..and I mean HOT!
But got to beach and Fog ..fog..and more fog.. Wednesday was worst than Tuesday.

Yep surf conditions were not the greatest either... again Tuesday being the better day.

So let's start with Tuesday cold,foggy,and maybe 1 or 2' with some 3 footers coming in on occasion... But the norm was more like 1-2.
I was really not feeling it.. My teeth were chattering and I don't like surfing in the fog! Just freaks me out not being able to see.. Barely see the pier!

But... My friend Dawn and Kim were saying come on we are already here .. Let's go!!
So they and hubs twisted my arm and in we went !!
We had the funnest time!!! We were laughing and going crazy and caught waves surprisingly !
Don't get me wrong they were soft and not easy to catch and a very short ride.
But one time we all paddled for a wave and I yelled party wave... As we paddled we all stopped and looked at each other ..the wave just disappeared...we started laughing and I said ok that was a party paddle!
We all for sure got our paddle on!!!
And we were just having the best time joking and making fun of our waves and how we were all surfing!
We seriously made the best of the conditions!!

Next day smaller surf... Way more fog!!! As a matter of fact we decided to have breakfast and wait for the fog to lift and supposedly surf conditions were going to be better a little later.
So we waited and ate at Charlies Chili.. I am watching what I eat .. Trying to lose some more weight.. I had a spinach and mushroom omelette with egg whites .. And side of cottage cheese and tomatoes .. But I did splurge and had an English muffin.

Also all these people showed up... I guess it's shoobie season again! Even in the fog people were showing up with umbrellas and tents popping up everywhere!
Even a school bus!!!

Then ... We went to check surf again... Hmmm not much has changed .. Fog lifted a bit.. But not much..Again Dawn was there and we headed in..

I caught a few and we had fun... But it was not as fun as the day before ... But again we made the best out of the time out there...
One thing that stood out.. While I was sitting out there in the fog.. I felt something hit my leg and freaked out... And then I see this long branch was floating next to me... It was big... Looked like a femur! I grabbed it and paddled to shore with it... That could hurt someone .. Dawn asked what it was ? I said its a leg bone!!! Really it looked like that.. But it was wood! I seriously almost jumped out of my skin over a piece of wood!

Both days we were out for an hour and 45 minutes and got cardio in right??? And... Of course quality time with hubs.

I forgot to mention hubs wetsuit ripped at the arm/shoulder when he was putting it on Wed. So he surfed like that... We decided to head to froghouse to get him a new suit.. We were hoping for used ... They didn't have any. We didn't have a lot of $$ but the great guys at the Froghouse hooked us up! And hubs got a new suit and picked up some wax too at a very good price!

Also last pix here.. Froghouse was selling any board on the floor in that pile...$50!!
Biggest board was an Al Merrick 7'6.. It was so thin though...but if I had extra$$ I would have bought it!

I have to say I have been enjoying surfing with hubs... It's really been strengthening our relationship.

My new saying ... Couple who surfs together stays together ;-)

Following are pix from both foggy days and my yummy breakfast!
