Aloha No!

The world lost a special man last night and great many of us lost an incredible friend. Arthur Treon, my wife's Uncle passed away suddenly last evening as a result of doing what he loved to do. An emergency responder, volunteer fireman and a truly special person to the end. To say that he will be missed would be an extreme understatement. Aloha Oe Uncle Artie. See you on the other side.

Photo op...

Had to do some work in the basement this weekend and move a few things out of our way. Figured it was a good time to snap a few photos of the board while I had em out.

" It looks prawn-ish"....

??? No idea???

LB rescues a honeybee from the water's edge. He had it in his hand for 30 minutes before it finally perked up.

666... Oh snap!

Did not realize that yesterday's post put me up to a certain ominous number. So here's one to get me over to 667. Sorry Satan, no love.

Photo by Yukon from yesterday afternoon. He has a much nicer camera than I. :)

Fell back in time overnight, woke to the sound of a jet engine howling over the house. No jet, just a NW wind firing on all cylinders. Got to the Rocks by 8a to find it OK clean with 30kt offshore gusts. NUTS! Steve from CM was as eager for a surf as I was, so out we went. Not perfect nor inviting but it was something. There were some decent walls to fly down and a stiff north to south current to add to the fun and fury out in the water. Air 44 and the water somewhere around 60 I believe. Had several fun ones, got tossed on two and the walk back up to the parking lot was a workout in itself. A little taste of Winter on the 2nd day of November...
 My poor quality snaps don't quite capture the wind. You may be able to see the blowing sand and get an idea.

The flag at the Bree-Zee-Lee marina on the drive home. Straight out!

Board envy

A couple 9'8"s that I don't really need to have, but sure would like to have.  ; )


So close....

 With a hard NE blowing and airs temps dropping I was hoping to find some magic in town to warm me up. Checked all up/down Beach Ave. Povs was dumping, Queen St. was teasing, HQ was trying and the Cove was, well, it wasn't doing much either. Too much tide and not enough sand. With the 45kt NW gusts and 8'-12' seas NOAA has forecasted, the Rocks could get interesting tomorrow morning....
