Beautiful Winter Morning in the Park, in Words and Photos

[As always, click on the photos for full screen, high resolution.]

A week ago, the forecast was for overhead surf, maybe even to 10 feet, today.  By the time Saturday evening arrived, the forecast had been significantly downgraded, on SurfLine to 1-2 feet.  Nonetheless,  hearts were set on getting something this weekend, so off to the Park to see what we might find.  What we found was a beautiful, sunny, glassy morning:

But there was some surprising swell in the water:

Mark Ghattas and I were getting ours in.

 Some nice, hollow, waist to shoulder high smallies
 [definitely click though on this one!]

that were perfect for a bodysurfer to tuck into:
