Something about the ocean.
Takes two days to get there and then two more to actually get in. At least that's usually the case for me. It's so vast, so unpredictable and so stinking COLD. And there's just no way to ease into it. Yes, you can stay ankle deep in the sand, but that doesn't really count as getting in the ocean. But with a 5 year old SURFIN MACHINE you have little choice but to plunge in. . . . . . . 147 times. The kid from Baywatch fam the other day convinced David that hundreds of sharks are literally feeding just off shore between lunch and dinner and so we do most of our surfing in the morning. But between 8:00am and Noon you can ride quite a number of waves. So anyhow-- I will say that for me, getting into the ocean constitutes a kind of death. But once you get past the 20 degree drop in body temperature, it's loads of fun. The real blessing has been the kinds of conversations we have enjoyed somewhere between the sharks and the shoreline.
