We have 3 dogs. I haven’t posted an pics of Kody yet, but I’ve posted one photo of Sherman before. Today’s photo features our newest family member, Don Diego, and Sherman. As you can see they get along quite nicely and are, at times, inseparable.
I was camping all weekend long with the family up at El Capitan State Beach. What a great place to get away from the business of the city! It’s just a couple hours away from Los Angeles, but it makes you forget that how close you actually are to a major city.
Here are a few photos that I took over the weekend to bring me current on my 365. Bad news is that I’m headed to New York for a couple days and will not have time for any photos other than whatever I take with my iPhone. So I’ll be dark two more days then I’ll have a couple days of my best iPhone images on my return.
* Nate is plugging his hears because Marie was busy making some shave ice in the kitchen.
This morning, I took him into the barbershop to get his crazy hair back to a more manageable length. Today’s 365 is a last look at Nate before he gets clippers taken to it.
Finally, I felt good enough to get out of the house today! With Nate in tow, I drove up the coast to check out the place where I caught my first really memorable wave. I was riding a borrowed 1970′s 8’6″ Skip Frye with a crazy vee bottom. I remember making a bottom turn and feeling the sensation of being on what felt like an endless wave. It’s a perfect little wave too.
Today, there wasn’t much size to it, but there was nobody on it. I mean nobody. I’ve seen it plenty of days this size with a dozen people paddling around each other to get one of these tasty little morsels.
Of course, I was watching Nate so I didn’t even have my board with me so I just tried not to look at all the little waves go unridden. Instead, we tried to find some cool shells and picked up some trash here and there until it was time to head off the the park as I had promised.
This morning, I was back at Dockweiler for some more shots of the big cement jetty north of Imperial. There was a lot of wind blowing straight onshore so the surf wasn’t much to speak of. So no paddle out which is fine because it gave me enough time to get my 365 post up for the day.
