What drew me to the shore was the promise of 8-20ft swells (didn’t quite materialize except for shoals further out in the ocean ). And it being the shortest day of the year, blowing the blues away came in a close second.
As always a touch of sunset magic does the trick. I think it worked for all who were there too. Judge by the expressions!
I ended up shooting the breeze with some surfers till pitch dark when the scene was only lit by starlight and odd flash from ships far out at sea.
