Well shoot, it's a lot like a dog chasing a ball. There's no reason to stop if someone keeps throwing it. 

A friend of mine was in a boating accident several years ago. The boat overturned in the Pacific. He and the captain climbed up onto the overturned hull. He was swept off several times, and each time he swam back and clawed his way back up. I asked him how he did that and he said there wasn't anything else to do. That as long as he could manage his way back up onto the hull he was going to keep doing it. 

That's what we all do, right? We just keep doing it, whatever it is, until we can't.

I suppose you're right.

I do anyhow. You're a man's man, and you own it with humility.

Maybe just 5 more years or so. I bought my last suit of sails this spring. 

There are different styles of windsurfing. Plenty of people around here sail at the gentler sites and go back and forth. They enjoy it. I'm not knocking it. I moved past that in the mid 80s and started doing something a bit more extreme. I can't go back after seeing the beast. I need nature to try to kick my ass and get my attention. I need that challenge. But there are hints that my body is getting less happy about it. I'll just pull the plug when it's time and ride my bike more.

Thanks everyone.

This shot was taken from my windsurfing beach, Swell City. It was actually gusting to near 60mph at times before and after the shot was taken. Not good sailing wind but fun to see. Windsurfing season is getting close. Gorge windsurfing season 33 for me. How many more times.

Also, there dang well better be some camels next time, buster. 

 

It is a color image, and I think I see that hint of blue near the bottom of the photo in a couple of spots. Likely a reflection of the sky, which is blue overhead. 

And shoot, I remember seeing an empty pack on the ground as I was heading down to take photos. It may in fact have been Camels. I missed my opportunity.
