Beach Trip

Today we went to the beach on a trip organized by Scott and Nancy. In a previous post I mentioned how I met Scott and Nancy and it was through this blog. Scott is working here and Nancy is visiting and checking out Lagos before moving here in the Fall. The day started off on the wet side and was clear for most except for a few showers or sprinkles. The dark cloudy sky was very ominous but spectacular when combined with the green water and the huge waves.

A few folks went swimming but the waves looked just too big and too strong for me and the current was quickly taking them down the coast. Here is a video with Bob in the water (black dot near the center), relaxing in front of the big waves.

That video brings back memories of Stevensville and the lake on a very wavy day when you kids almost got swept away into a seawall. Do you remember???
Or the time in Florida when the waves and current kept washing you and your sibs along the beach and I was yelling like crazy to get you out of the surf...
But, then again, I remember a time I was lifeguarding on Oak Street beach and there was a northeast wind . The beach was closed, so the guards went surfing I ended upside down near the bottom and swimming like mad down deeper
