Surf Fridays!

photo by Jay Watson

Happy Surf Fridays! This is me last Sunday at the Santa Cruz Harbor, doing some stand up paddling. It's such a fun activitity on a flat day, not to mention a great workout. Cruising around the mile-long harbor, we saw sea lions, funny names on boats, a furry and polka-dotted baby seagull with her mother, cormorants, sailors, kayakers, man...just a lot of beautiful things in an afternoon.

I was a little nervous to post this photo because of my big red belly. Have I been eating a lot of pizza? Yes and no. I am excited and ready to tell you that Jay and I are having a baby! I'm just about 4 months along and I feel great.

I hope you are all feeling great today too. Tomorrow I'm doing a beach clean up at Gray Whale Cove, hosted by the Surfrider Foundation. On the way home, I'm going to drive on Skyline and look for wild blackberry bushes!

Lots of love to you...JW
