I've spent the last week in Japan on business and am so ready to come home tomorrow. I know, I know, I'm missing an epic swell; but one thing's for sure with mother ocean: another wave will come. See you Sunday.

Up In The Air

My timing is impeccable! Another week of flat surf just concluded and I could have surfed every day this week. I'm at the airport this evening for a trip to Dallas; back on Wednesday. But Thursday and Friday are packed with meetings at the corporate office and Saturday morning I'm off to Japan for the week. I guess I should be thankful I surfed last Monday, but honest to God I'm getting deeply depressed over my sad state of affairs with regards to getting in the water. The good news is I have no travel booked in July except at the end of the month I'm headed to Oahu for my Nephew's wedding. Hopefully, the end of  June through July has a few waves on tap for this weary traveler.

Last night our Lucy went over the rainbow bridge to be with her brother Bailey. She passed during night on our bed while we slept. I will miss my Woo.

Did I Surf Yesterday?

Oh yeah, I did.
I missed the swell last week because of business travel and then on the weekend I had my four grandchildren (ages: 4, 5, 6 & 7) for the weekend. Needless to say there was no time for the other woman.
Yesterday started off really slow at dawn. But as soon as the tide turned there were some fun chest high sets to be had. At least there was something to ride and only 3 of us in the water.
And now it looks like I'm going to miss next week's swell too because of business travel. Arrgg.
My timing is the worst! I could have surfed every day this week; only it's dead flat now.

Picking Up

Finally starting to see some improvement in size, although I heard yesterday was fun and uncrowded. Today was head high, calm winds and semi-crowded. A little bit of W wind started kicking up around 8:00. It was good to see Brady back in the water again.
