Crowded !!

Is it me or are the beaches getting more and more crowded every summer! 

I don't know Bolsa to be this crowded on a regular non holiday weekend?? Maybe I am use to surfing Bolsa earlier ?? But this was before 8:00 am!!!

Maybe I didn't surf Bolsa during summer weekends before???? Nahhh I know I have!! Right???

I don't know!!

Met Laurie and Greg at T 23... Their usual spot!
And of course all the people fishing are right in front of T 23... These are all people fishing!!!!

Again it's just before 8:00 AM here is the view as you look south!... See all the pop ups already???
And to the North!!! Tents as far as the eyes can see??

Hurry up Fall... Just cant get here soon enough!

As for surf ... It was 2-3'...A tad hard to catch first wave was a fun right.. I was yes this is gonna be fun!!
Then I just caught a few close outs ... After doing a lot of paddling and no catching!! They just rolled right under us.. Everyone in the line up was having the same experience.... It seems....high tide was messing things up a bit!
During this time Alain showed up... It's always nice when you see a familiar face!

Greg was catching a bunch!! Show off!! And Laurie caught a few.. One of her rides was a long perfect left... Seem to go on forever!! We all hooted and hollered for her!

I wanted a ride like that!!

And you know what??... A nice big wave ... Big for that day.. Came by and I took it!! 
It was an amazing long left... All the way to shore!! At the end I was yelling that's what I'm talking about!!! A guy who was surfing next to us took a ride right before me and he felt my stoke and added to my comment of "now thats what I'm taking about" with "Nicely Done!!!"
As I paddled back out ..Laurie was clapping for me! And said that was a good one! I said Yeah it was!! That was FUN!!!

She took one in and I was right behind her .. Took a little one that stopped just inside and I could not even get white wash  to shore!! 

Oh well what a fun 2 hours of surfing!!

After that went back to check on my dog im petsitting!! Who was just fine!

Then Greg and Laurie pick me up and  we go to Island grill to get some Hawaiin food and shaved ice!

I decide on a chicken salad and California roll!!
Mmm pineapple and piña colada flavored with double condense milk and ice cream!!!!!... To Die For!!!


Greg and Laurie drop me off and I take care of the doggie again... 

And then meet them again later  to hear a fun local band! 

After we walk out to see if we can catch the sunset .. Just missed it !! But still what a beautiful sight to see!

 And a great way to end a fun day with friends!!
