It's been awhile since I've been in the water. Went out this morning, with everyone else, wasn't expecting much. (Didn't get much either). I was sitting with one of the local guys, whose name rhymes with "Parkus", through these long lulls, ponderous long lulls because of the tide. He says to me, "I feel it coming, we've waited long enough and shown our resolve. We are respecting the ocean and I think something is coming." I think, he's dreaming and say with my usual smart ass, negative attitude, " Yeah maybe over there." Meaning it's been coming in, but not to me.....Sure enough, a big (bigger than the smaller shit that was coming in) lump comes in headed right to him...he paddles, gets a really nice ride all the way in. As he comes back out, I say, "should have kept my mouth shut." He just smiles and says, "There's still a need for the naysayers."
I'm really going to try to stop being a naysayer....
