I had so much fun this weekend! On Saturday, eSuitor and I rented boogie boards and went to Huntington Beach to catch some waves. It was my first time to immerse myself in the Pacific Ocean, and all I can say is "hooray for wetsuits!". That water is chilly!!! And the waves are so strong. The first big one that rolled in totally knocked me over--the ponytail that looked so cute when I went into the water was knocked completely off kilter by one wave! Do the waves have no respect for the look I was going for??? ;) (This photo is not of us, but it gives you the idea.)
It took me a little while to get the timing of catching a wave, but once I got it down--SO MUCH FUN!!! It's like riding a rollercoaster! The wave just comes underneath you and carries you. It's like flying! Sometimes, it just kept going and going and took me almost all the way into shore. It was a blast, and kind of addicting. Once you catch a good wave, you want to go out and get another.
eSuitor is a surfer, and I suspect that Saturday's boogie adventure was part of a greater scheme to get me on a surf board. Kinda breaking me in easy. We'll have to see on that one...one step at a time. Poco a poco, as they say in Spain. I don't know if I'll be a surfer girl, but I definitely love to boogie!
