Winter has arrived

25th Nov 2010.

So winter has arrived.  My board was left over night in the yard and needed a mop down after 2 inches of snow lay on it this morning.  Today was a wake up, smell the coffee, microwave some porridge and check the surf.  Yes the surf was pants but why change a habit.   Today involved being very delicate with my precious new wetsuit.  Every step on the rocks and hop over walls was with extra care.  There was no way I wanted to scuff my zipper less winter Circle One. After a wiggle in the sea and a final snow flurry it was back for more coffee.   This time the board is not sitting in the yard over night.
