The Last Springsuit Session?


The ocean is taking back all the sand it brought to the beach this summer.
The high, high tides have made one of those sand berms that you'll crumble and fall off of if you walk too closely to its edge.
Some people might have forgotten about the big boulders that live on the beach because they've been covered up.
When I was duck diving next to some guys, I opened my eyes underwater and looked over to see if I could see them, but I couldn't because the waves had mixed up the water too much.
Then some dolphins swam by and I stuck my ears under to hear them, but they were pretty quiet.
October might behave as it usually does and deliver dry days and warm wind and then I may slip back into my springsuit, but until then, it's getting too cold.

  1. I love these close up shots of the sand. It's interesting to see it up close. Your pictures are always so beautiful. That image of you going under the water to see if the dolphins were talking makes me smile:)

    1. I might have to wear earplugs the next time I surf since the water is getting back into the 60s. Hopefully I can still hear the dolphins with them in. Hope your Monday is going well, Kari.

    1. The transition from summer to fall is definitely one of the changes in life that I like. I bet fall is beautiful where you are! I picture lots of red and orange trees and perfect sweater weather.

  4. The weather is changing around here to Devon. Although the 35C weather we had last week made it feel like summer all over again.! Hope your doing well. It's been a tough month or two for me so I haven't been blogging very much lately. I love the transition from fall into winter up here because our trees go golden with all kinds of reds, yellows, and oranges. It's one of my favourite times of the year to photograph! Your images are amazing by the way!

    1. Hi Ross! Sorry to hear it's been a tough few months. Hopefully the change in season will bring a positive shift for you. The trees you described make me want to buy a plane ticket to some place like that right now. What a neat transition to witness. Feel better!

  5. Do you get sad when it's too cold to surf?? I always look forward to fall here in Ohio, but I'm sure it's a bittersweet transition for you!

    1. Fortunately, it's never too cold to surf around here because the water only gets as low as ~55º and the air usually "only" drops into the 40ºs. It feels too cold to surf somedays, though. And even today it's a little foggy and I'm already hesitating, but if you have the right equipment and mindset you can still surf everyday in winter and actually the waves are usually better so at least there's that to motivate you.
