I rolled the dice on a foggy dawn patrol this morning. Eh, the waves kind of stunk... but the water was incredibly warm, I couldn't see the beach from the lineup, and it was very peaceful floating around in the fog. With my visual senses largely shut down, I noticed something that I don't think I've ever noticed before -- the feeling of the wind against my face as I took off and rode the wave. What a neat sensation of speed. I can't believe I've never noticed that before. I also noticed the updraft each time a wave passed -- that same little lift of wind that the pelicans air-surf on. Cool. The rising sun helped lift the fog just in time to head off to work. Overall, a pretty pleasant morning.
