Tuesday morning was special ...
Kaiwi and I usually wake up pretty early -- he is off to the harbor to run shark diving tours, and I usually head to a nearby coffee shop to do editing or emails if I'm not on a job. For some reason on this particular day we decided to head down to the beach just after sunrise for a slide. This would not have been a rare occasion when we were sixteen or seventeen, but as life gets busier and busier every year, we haven't made time for a morning surf date in quite some time.
The wind was still, the water looked identical to a swimming pool, mini waves were rolling through and we were nothing but smiles as we laughed and tried to drop into these tiny barrels. A few hours later a storm blew through this perfect stretch of ocean and the day turned into a dark, windy, cold day. For those who enjoyed the ocean that morning, you get me!
