I spent the last three days surfing and I am pretty pooped! Last night was the grande finale of my sessions for the week, as I stayed out with my new friend Hannah and waited for the moon to rise. I got to Cowells at about 4:30pm and EVERYONE was out there: Alison, her roommate Peter, Nicole, Steve, Laurie, Hannah and other familiars. The surf was so fun due to the fading swell and negative low tide! The waves keep rolling in. The sun was going down and it was starting to get breezy and cold. Then then the sun did go down and it was just freezing! But as soon as the moon started peeking from the cloud cover it was just amazing! The clouds were illuminated and the bright moonbeams reflected and shimmered bright orange and yellow on the water surface. It so happened that it was a harvest moon as Hannah pointed out, so it appeared bigger and brighter. I wish I had my camera!
It was very much worth the hypothermia and frozen ass!! I would totally do it again. I don't think I could have had a more fun and beautiful evening.
