The sea has traded that summer look for late autumn hues . There’s been plenty of rain and the rivers have started to tint our water a deep bronze green. It’s not unusual to see this autumn transformation in the bay. Yet it often catches the visitors by surprise. One day it’s a summery crystal clear turquoise, when suddenly overnight we’re all transported into an alternate seascape. It instantly looks colder, a little foreboding, there’s an added hint of adventure as we’re no longer able to see the bottom. It’s dark and murky; some folks don’t like it at all. But not this old salty dog, sure we need to be a little more aware of what lays beneath as the fish love it when it’s like this, and all know what loves the fish. But it also has a different feel; the waves are so much more defined to look at. When you surf it, it looks solid beneath your board. When the dolphins jump it’s a joyous surprise as we don’t see them coming, and best of all, it’s beautiful. The light and the wind play with the water in a totally different manner after the autumn rain. It warms the heart while chilling the skin; it makes us think of heading home for hot soup. It reminds us to get our rubber ready, because the majesty of winter is on its way.
To all those to all those lovely folks who struck a pose for us today, we’d just like to say. Thank you for being, .
