sail away

Here By Glimpses Known


The return of windy days means that

mana_trini's going to get to break out the surfboard again. Although Mayotte isn't known for its surfing--and for good reason--there are a few months out of the year when catching small waves is possible. If J can let go of his speargun long enough, he might even be able to ride a few of those wavelets. :P He's even got a few helpers lined up to aid him in loading the car.

 

 

Go to. Strip off your clothes that are a nuisance in this mellow clime. Get in and wrestle with the sea; wing your heels with the skill and power that reside in you, hit the sea’s breakers, master them, and ride upon their backs as a king should.~~Jack London, The Cruise of the Snark, 1911

*An odd bit of synchronicity: The song I was listening to while writing this post is from a band we discovered on a surfing DVD.
