I come here not to look out, but to look within.

I returned to Pacifica with 3 friends ( T, DD, and PP) for the sunset. As luck would have it the fog didn’t come in, but hung back with just a thin layer of mist floating in the air.
The wave and tide while high again today wasn’t nearly as rough or as high as Saturday last, but I wasn’t able to get down on the other side of the beach to take another shot I had hoped to get.
I wish Pacifica would replace those 2 burned out bulbs! I’ll have to come back when they’ve replaced them.
T said she had heard that the Mavericks were in. “Mavericks is a winter destination for some of the world’s best big wave surfers. Very few riders become big wave surfers; and of those, only a select few are willing to risk the hazardous conditions at Maverick’s. An invitation-only contest is held there every winter, depending on wave conditions.” ~ wikipedia

That explains why there were no surfers here on Saturday evening. They were all down watching the Mavericks.

I read that an OC county surfer Jacob Trette was nearly drowned at the Mavericks on Sunday. He was pulled out of the ocean unconscious by a photographer who was out there in a boat. The story is that he and other surfers were caught by a huge wave that came in and the subsequent waves pushed him down. Trette was put in a medically induced coma, but his condition was upgraded from “critical to fair” yesterday. I hope Trette gets stronger with each new day, and send my sympathy and warmest thoughts to his family. People are keeping you in their hearts and prayers. May you find strength and comfort in family and friends.
