More Wind Swell, GB

Pretty much a redux of yesterday morning. But, this was the first time in five years as a state parks pass holder that a ranger didn't open the gate at 8AM. Don't know what happened, but I hope it isn't a harbinger of things to come.

Met Warren who was also parked in line and showed him the Ghost Buster. He dug it so when he decided to take alternative parking, I gave him the board to surf until I got out there. Also, ran into Priscilla who was surfing with Michael. Where's Patrick? He's burnt out from surfing the hull Christian recommended. Ha-ha....funny how things work out that way.

There's a small southerly swell in the water, but other than some minor size on some sets, it wasn't showing well at the beaches. Most waves were off the wind swell. Surf about the same today, perhaps a bit smaller. Not much real ground swell on the horizon so it looks like I'll be getting more Ghost Buster time at the beaches.

Weather this morning was fog, low clouds and drizzle. So much water that puddles were formed on the main road as I drove in. More of the same forecast for a while. Put my booties back on today. At least I was warm for the whole session.
