Tropical Storm Ida’s…

My neighbor Ernest.

…surf blew through here yesterday and so I went to the beach to take pictures of the surfers and the waves.

The Veterans’ Day holiday: school’s out and surf’s up.

Ernest surfs every day that he can. Really enjoy his Facebook updates: what a life!


Not Ernest.

The surfers were flocking to the beach all day long. These pictures were taken from the 19th Street beach in Atlantic Beach. The water was still warm and I got fairly soaked while standing in the surf aiming for my money shot.
These are fun shots, but I didn’t get what I was trying for. But I’ll live to photograph another day, so enjoy them and keep checking back. I’m not planning to abandon my passion for spreading the word about our awesome community.
Want to visit, in real life? Let me know: I’ll hook you up to all the right places.
There’s something for everyone here at the beaches.

    I've always wanted to learn how to surf. One of my guy friends is an amazing surfer, sponsored even, But he is from Oregon and learning off that coast may be a wee bit cold and lots of sharks there. I would rather learn in warm water. What a fun place to live.

    I will show my husband these photos. We are landlocked here in GA but he grew up in FL and loves to surf. Alas he does not have a surfboard and has to borrow a brother's when we go to FL. But he loves to surf craigslist and the surf forum for a long board and the hear about the waves.
