Surf's Up


I had lunch yesterday with my big little brother and he was in a really good mood. So good that he played along when I whipped out my camera. I had the not so usual pleasure of snapping away and he not mugging at the camera. He probably won't thank me but I could not resist putting together this montage.
I've known since Dave was 7 years old and hanging ten on his skateboard that the kid would be a surfer. From San Diego's Ocean Beach to La Jolla, to Pismo and Maui and back, he has always had his surfboard ready to go.
Dave's pushing 46 now and a teacher in the Central Valley about as far as you can get from a wave and still be within driving distance for a day trip. But like clockwork, once a month he loads up his board, heads for the coast and hangs ten for all he's worth. Surf's UP, Bro.

How lucky you are! A little brother of your very own. I'm stuck between two sisters in front and back, no brothers and have always missed that relationship, whch I assume must be very special. However, I did gift my daughter with this-a younger brother-and it has saved her bacon several times. The photos are just beautiful. Thank you, Anne.

Just talked to my bro out in Texas today! Yours is ruggedly handsome! Did YOU ever try surfing Miss Annie?

AnnieElf said...

Oh Yes. I did. Back in high school. Wiped out a lot but it was fun.

Hey, this is a terrific montage. Has your brother seen it?

AnnieElf said...

Don't know Susanna. His computer kind of moves in slo-mo. He and Yo will be by sometime tomorrow so I'll show it to them then.
