Not Too Shabby

Chest high plus waves, off shores, combo swell and only a handful of early risers. Glad I was able to partake.

I didn't get the opportunity to go but Steve took a chance on the meager forecast. He said it pretty much sucked until the tide filled in. Then there were a few waist high runners.
My better half is now allowed to do some weight bearing on her broken leg. Little by little. Three or four more weeks and she should be able to walk without assistance. I'm counting the days......

Sounds Like I Missed It Again

While I was traveling to the west of Ireland the early crew was having a blast. Overhead, offshore and uncrowded. In 4 to 6 weeks things will get back to normal for me. Here are a few pictures taken by Steve:

Meanwhile, I had a steak dinner with a Guinness.

Snagged A Few This Morning

Pretty fun this morning and nice to get out during the week again when it's not so crowded. I've got to travel to Europe next week so I hope to get out again tomorrow or Friday before I leave on Saturday.
