Here is a fun old shot i took...
I have tons more with eggs and stuff.. I will try and dig em out today as the surf isn't that good nor is the sun..
Yesturday was a GLORIOUS day... SO AWESOME with a kayak tour to Seal Rock, Surf pumping the sun shining and chatting up with my friends at the pub for dinner..
