I have somewhat of a date tomorrow evening. Let me rewind back to Thursday. After a week of classes, I seriously needed to get in some surfing. So after work Thursday, I drove over to Santa Cruz and got in the water. It was freakin' cold!! As I was sitting on my board in the water, I looked onshore and saw a pretty girl walking along the newly formed sandbar. It was hard to get a look from such a far distance, so I took some waves in and walked back up the sandbar to the lineup and to get a better view. This was a pretty girl! So I went back into the water and played around for a little bit, just kind of putting her out of my mind and resuming my session. I was getting cold, so I knew it was time to get out and get dressed, but not before having the pluckish urge to play in the mote of still, warm, water by the stairs! It was long and deep enough for me to sail around on my surfboard... that was too much fun! Anyway, I finally got to the top of the stairs and saw that girl again! She was leaning on a rock watching the surfers below. I decided I was going to go talk to her. I put my board down and was also gazing at my fellow surfers, thinking of an opening line or something witty to say. So, I turned to her, smiled and said "Didn't get into the water today?" She smiled back and replied that she didn't surf and that it looked cold (it was). We started talking and I found out she had just got into town the night before from Kansas. She was just touring around Westcliff and checking everything out. I said "So you don't know anyone?" and she nodded, and answered "No one.", so I put my hand out "My name is Leigh. You know one person now." We talked more and exchanged phone #'s. Yesterday I had invited her to breakfast with Alison and I, which she intitially accepted. But she called me earlier this evening to tell me that she was scheduled to work earlier than she originally thought. This girl found a job in one day - impressive! A woman of action. Anyway, I mentioned I was most likely going to be surfing tomorrow evening about the time she is off of work, so I asked her she wanted to go get some dinner, and she was all for that. I can't wait to get to know her more... she's very talkative and interesting! I'll keep you all posted!
PS- I decided on a wetsuit (pictured below, same color and all). I actually already bought it, but had to exchange it for a size bigger cuz the ladies were a little restrained ;) and it was tight around the neck. Sorry... it's not me modeling.
