77 felt good after 33

Santa Barbara was sunny and more importantly warm ( ~77 degrees). We went running on the beach everyday.

We watched a bunch of surfers one day. Here's a picture of a surfer in motion and for those of you who have seen ice skating; surfing I thought resembled it- the angle of the bodies, the rhythm of one's body that coordinated with the rhythm of the waves, and the grace with which the surfers rode the waves was impressive. After watching these guys in action, I put surfing on my to-do list for life.

I made friends with a real hot surfer who was riding confidently on the waves- he had the cutest dimpled smile and the most amazing baritone voice.

Hope all of you had a lovely beginning to 2007. Cheers to Sun, Santa Barbara and Surfing ;)

We took surfing lessons one afternoon while on vacation. I did manage to get up on the board once, but no pictures to prove it. Have several wipeout photos though.
