State of Mind: Reflective

A few years ago I thought my surfing days were behind me.  Bad back, torn shoulder.  But the beach was still a place of joy.  A place to walk along the shore, take a few photos, get sand between my toes.

I shot this image into our beach-front Taco Bell on one of those days.  Pedro Point and people chowing on tacos shows through while a solitary surfer reflects back.

I’ve surfed twice the past week.  On a Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) and am so grateful that a board is under my feet again.  Every day I wake to check out the surf.  And from time to time get to ride on it.

My son has a dog named Zeus. He’s my part-time pet, like when our grand daughter was born two weeks ago. Zeus stayed with us.

On our very first SUP outing, noted in my very first post, I stayed on the beach with camera in hand and Zeus went out with Matthew.  It didn’t start out this serene. They were both in the water at the start, but cruised in with style.  This is the Princeton Harbor, next to Mavericks where tomorrow’s big wave surf contest will be held.
