The waves roared,
The sun smiled,
The sky was as blue as a diamond,
California is filled with so many adventures,
So many things to do!

Summer waves,

Blue sky
A little piece of paradise

Unaware of destiny

Body surfing on the Atlantic Coast
A towering wave was headed my way
The challenge of which I sure planned to boast
Already I was thinking what I might say

Caught it far out, rode thirty feet toward shore
In four-foot water I rose joyfully

From tiny gals with itty-bitty bippies
to larger ladies with super-dooper droopers,

My “pointers” don’t bounce
(as a friend observed),
so why submit to torturous braziers?

I’m glad they don’t droop –

though surfboard owners...Read More
