That said, one of our objectives in regards to our living situation is to end up close to the coast, with much easier access to surf. I dream of having the surf and rock gardening so accessible that it's even practical to go for a half day or a few hours. Dare I dream about pre-workday, morning surfs followed by a great Americano and breakfast at some modest soul-kitchen? Of course there will also be other skilled and enthusiastic boaters to share the stoke with and push each others limits, too!

This fall will definitely have a surf trip in store, perhaps in Oregon preceding or following Lumpy Waters (a symposium created and run by Alder Creek), or south of Neah Bay--Shi Shi beach. For this trip we'd hike in with boats on wheels, filling the boats with paddling gear, camping gear, and food.
Time will tell, as we're still a few weeks out from that piece of October, but more will follow...
