TODAY is International Surf Day! Grab your boards, dudes and dudettes. Oh, the surf is a dud today, dude...typical for summer in the Gulf. Well, to make up for it, here's a pic of the beach where I grew up. Looks like the south side of Naples Pier, a break I rode many a time -- small (OK, tiny!) waves but one takes what one can get in SW Florida. I knew some of the guys in this photo but can't recall any names now.

Talking about surfing, I have to read a book, do research about surfing and surf culture for my next novel. It is a sequel to my first, one of my characters (remember Stephen?) was a surfer. This story is about him. So I will be on a learning curve with that one. Incidentally my first 'pash' was with a surfie when I was on holiday on the east coast of NSW many moons ago. I was 14 years old. That was memorable. All my girlfriends, at the time, thought surfies were too fabulous. I must admit the encounter was a bit magical. Surfers can be too cool (I discovered I liked bikes better at a later time.:)

Oh btw, it is the day of the winter solstice here, the year's shortest day. It aint half cold here too. Winter in Tassy. It would brrr your buns off!
