In January of this year, one of my oldest/dearest friends and I headed north from L.A. to the Central Coast. Being January, it was quite cold. The wind was blowing the waves backwards and making the water really turbulent. But the ocean life didn’t seem to mind. They were all just kickin’ it, including the surfers. Those guys are nuts! I’ll be headed back north sometime this summer with my step mom and can’t wait to see how different the conditions are.
