It was on a whim. The forecast from Surfline was calling for fair surf out at Sandbridge. I was trying to get up super early. I ended up sleeping in till 10 am, which I needed. But I got myself quickly and found myself out at Sandbridge. Fair surf. Tolerable sea temperatures. A new bodyboard. I had time to kill before going into work. Perfect morning mini zen session.
Granted, while I am out of shape and very, very much out of practice, and despite the trouble getting out past the initial surf and coming back in shore, it was a blast and I loved every minute of it. I always sucked at sports, especially those that involved running but I was always an excellent swimmer and this morning reminded me how much I love the water.
I need more of this this summer and hopefully into the fall.
