Tomorrow, I head to California to celebrate the wedding of a close friend. In honor of my California trip, I thought I would take a look back on a previous wander in Southern California.
Almost a year ago to the day after a delicious brunch, we took a saunter down to the Hermosa Beach pier. Having lived in California I usually am not terribly impressed by the beach views. However, that day was different. It was windy so there was clear skies, no smog and a decent break in the surf. There were loads of surfers out and we took some time to enjoy watching the action.
One surfer in particular intrigued me because I noticed that he was paddling out wearing a trucker hat. Who does that? Even great surfers bail out of waves and I was sure that he was going to lose his hat. I managed to capture a great picture of him as he cut under the pier to catch the break.
We watched him for a while, but he never did lose his hat.
