Surf's Up!

Surf's Up! There was a high surf advisory this week end due to all of the storms but that did not stop us from taking a trip to the Central Coast. It had been a long time since we had taken a weekend trip. My goal was to sit on a rock and listen to the waves crash! The water was really rough but it certainly didn't phase the surfers. The weather was wonderful. I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. I almost felt guilty for enjoying myself so much especially when I have friends who are experiencing so much rain and tons of snow. One friend claims she is inside a snow globe! Sorry Sandi!

It looks calm enough, doesn't it? The rock marks one side of the entrance to the bay. There is a jetty that extends from the rock across part of the opening...let me show you.

I walked to the right and climbed through the rocks to get into a position that would let me see the west side of the jetty! Okay, so it sounds crazy but it was safe. Let me show you what I watched!!

It was exciting to watch the waves crash. I am always amazed at the force of the ocean.


It is Outdoor Wednesday and it was a sunny and partly cloudy day at the beach. Please visit all of the other folks who are sharing their outdoor experiences today. Outdoor Wednesday is being hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.

  6. Great photos! I could sit and watch the ocean for hours.
    Have you ever read a small book called Walking the Wrack Line by Barbara Hurd? You'd love it.

  9. I love to watch surfers but yet it scares me too. It must be fun, but I would never ever try it even in my younger days.

  11. Fabulous shots! I never tire of watching and listening to the surf whether it is the gentle waves upon a sandy beach or the crashing waves upon a rocky shore.

    Thank you for sharing your day at the coast with us.
