I go, I see, I do, I walk, I think, I like…

At the Coast, but Not at Mavericks

The famous Mavericks surf competition was held yesterday along the Pacific coast south of San Francisco. Lots of people head out there to try to view (and photograph) the event. (Take a look John Mueller’s photographs at Flickr to get an idea of the crowds, the beautiful weather, and even a bit of surfing.)

I went over that direction, but intentionally stayed away from the scene at Mavericks. It was a wonderful day – where I was it was not too cold, but the surf was tremendous and there was lots of interesting clouds, fog, and light.
