Let’s go surfing
High tide today (at least according to one local TV station) was scheduled at approximately 6:00 am.  We walked to the berm and everything was dry on the residential side of the berm.  That’s a good thing. 

On the ocean side we found a few dozen surfers enjoying the higher-than-normal surf.  Surfers here prefer the north side of the pier – but today they were on the south side.  The surf was breaking closer to the shore so most of the rides were shorter but much more thrilling than they normally are.

We had expected much higher surf conditions but those may come later in the day.
