A week without surfing

Ok I remember when that was no big deal.. But I have not gone over a week in a while it seems!
So am having withdrawals..
Checked surf at Blackies on Tuesday but low tide and no surf detoured that... However saw a few starfish on the pier pilings ....AND...A whale family with a baby just where the surf line up would be.. Hubs said they were so shallow because there was a baby... And shallows help protect them during their journey back North..Below is a picture .. The best i could get with my I phone
.... I considered going surfing today.. But i went out last night with hubs to see my friend Kirsten in her new band Calico at a coffee house in Newport i guess it's good I did not..
Because my last surf adventure at Doheny a week ago last Tuesday. Which I did not blog about.. Uneventful really ..But..
I guess my board hit my foot.. And it did not hurt.. It was a lil swollen and that night I put on my walking shoes went for a walk and it hurt... Hmm.
But the next day it was bruised pretty bad ,..however since it has not been hurting as much as it looks like it should I been using it and doing whatever..
Now as of a few days ago.. It's been bugging me..SO
Now I decided to rest it!! The bruise is getting better .. I'm not sure if it is because it's been a week and 3 days or because I started using an Arnica gel another surfer recommended .. But since I started using this as of yesterday I see an improvement :-).. It's a homeopathic medicine and I think every surfer should keep this in their surf bag for aches pains swelling and bruises!!
So now i have been resting it.. Sort of.. Not running and surfing.. And trying to do activities not involving the foot so much.
However im not one to sit still .. So been sanding my stairs and doing some yard work..
Next week I plan to surf!! Fingers crossed!
