Monster Surf! It's gnarly, brah

Photo from the front page of today's San Diego Union-Tribune. Our coast is getting pounded by huge waves, beautiful waves, and causing a bit of a Hawaiian-style community vibe. This pic is actually of Ensenada, Mexico, but that is just a hop, skip, and a jump distance wise. Up in Santa Monica, the surf took out a concrete bathroom. Don't mess with Mother Nature--she has all the power. An ex-boyfriend and I went (a couple of years ago) to a choice surf spot way down by Colima, Mexico, and the beach there is just ravaged with pieces of steel from buildings the sea has swallowed then spit out again. He is an excellent surfer, but even he wore a helmet in that surf. Third world but idyllic, that place. Someday I'll return and perhaps stay forever. Posted by Picasa

Wow! I'm getting homesick already! Although, it's just as hot up here as it is down there, I'm sure.
