Big kids chasing waves.....!!


On Saturday morning I met my sisters and nieces at The Trigg Island Cafe (Trigg Island Cafe) for breakfast. I went along early to see if there was anything interesting going on at  the beach.  It always amazes me that no matter how wild, wet and windy it is, there are always surfers, kayakers and joggers out there willing to battle the elements!! These three mates, struggled down against the stiff breeze trying to blow them back, made it to the edge and somehow managed to get themselves out beyond the surf.....Meanwhile these weary surfers who had been out since sunrise were trudging back across the sand to rinse off their wetsuits and probably tuck into a huge breakfast, as did I, but without  all the effort beforehand.....!!

  1. Guess it can only make you stronger, 'fighting' with this element; even though i might be too afraid to.
    Please have a good Sunday you all.

  2. Winter doesn't look too bad there! We can certainly jog in winter here but surfing - no way.
