Here's a sign you won't find in the Pacific Northwest.
The waves were perfect this morning. Shoulder-high, green and glassy, wrapping around the point at Ledbetter in clean sets going off in succession down the beach. There were about 20 of us in the lineup, but it seemed like everybody had room. I had some of the longest rides I've ever had, from the point to the parking lot. Almost.
A week of wind has chilled the water down, but with today's high supposed to hit 80 again, that is not necessarily a bad thing. Yesterday was pretty good; today is shaping up to be even better.
