The vacation's main course was Sunday morning...all that you want from Newport. Late Sunday afternoon, Allan and I went out at 6th Street where some overhead, walled off sets were interspersed with some rideable head high waves. Still with the long interval and Newport's shoaling, lots of power.

Took off on two of the larger set waves...just because...and wasn't able to hold the face for long at all. Both resulted in face-smacking free falls. Body-whomping at its best.

Had some fun, fast rides, including a couple of decent-length lefts, on the lesser sets. Chilly water and a steady wind were ok, with sunshine and swell.

Sunday was a beautiful day from the time the sun broke until evening. We were able to pack up Monday morning, feeling fulfilled.
