Vitamin D from Vitamin Sea

Sunday day trip to one of fave new spots. I was scared we would get totally skunked and be drenched in rain. But it was peeling and sunny... the perfect combination for a day trip.

Morning sesh: 2-3 feet for us (scored fun little right-handers as well as a few lefts), and further down the beach, perfect baby waves for the first-timers.

Lunch: scrambled eggs, luncheon meat, cheese, peanut butter, brown bread, bites of Migui’s incredi-sandwich, bananas with Nutella, some spag from Pao, a sip of milk, lots of water and Golden Oreos. Random. Yummy.

Afternoon sesh: 4 feet with some close outs, what felt like never-ending sets (“Lull! I want a lull! I need to rest!”).There are no photos (from my camera) of the afternoon sesh because I was in the water trying to catch as many waves as I could before I started cramping.

Ting Pats, Pao and Julienne decided to paddle to the reef break at the tip of the cove. According to them, it was slopey, overhead and just the teensiest bit too shallow.

We were packed up and showered by 5pm. Had a really good catch-up conversation with my friend Raf - who I hadn't seen in at least 5 months that was largely about religion, spirituality and opening yourself to the universe.

On the road by 6pm. Slept the whole way home. :) It wasn't my best day trip this year but it was still super fun. A day at the beach, on your board... very few city options can truly compare.
