There was a light dusting of snow on the mountains behind Santa Barbara
this morning. My wife and I took a walk out on the pier at about 8:30 in
bitter cold offshore winds, only to notice that the waves were pretty good
over at the sandbar. We talked with photog Brandan Aroyan for a few
minutes while he shot pictures, and then we bolted over there to get some
for ourselves. There were tons of waves, superfast racetracks, probably
the best it's been this year. Maria shot a few images with her cell phone
to give a sense of how much fun it was.
