I can't believe my trip is over already, but in a couple of hours I'll be on a plane headed back.
This picture is quite typical of the wave action right by my friend's house (about 3 or 4 blocks away). Yesterday was quite funny -- I wiped out without ever going in the water! I was laying out almost at the edge of the beach, far (or so I thought) from the water. After about 20 minutes, I felt the water at my head, soaking my towel. I quickly grabbed my glasses, shoes and clothes and ran for higher ground. I'm sure I provided great comedy to the folks hanging out there. Oh well. As they say around here, "Just another shitty day in paradise."
