Margo’s First Surf!

Come on mom!  Get in, out of the lineup, so you can take ME surfing!

Margo really cracks us up!  One second, she’s whimpering because she sees a dog off his lead, and the next moment, she’s
petting a baby crocodile at the wildlife sanctuary.  One second, she’s crying because she got water (just water, not soap),
in her eyes in the shower, and the next second, she’s jumping in the ocean and begging for me to take her surfing! Anyway, I was
surfing for about an hour and a half, and Art was on the beach, with Goldie in the Ergo (baby carrier) and Margo was playing in
shallow baby pool on the inside.  I was really surprised to see that they were still hanging out on the beach and hadn’t gone
home yet even after I had been out for a while.  When I paddled in, Margo wanted me to take her surfing!  Lucky for
me, I have some surf lesson instructor hours up my sleeve, from when I lived on Maui year ago.  Here were are, surfing at
Rainbow Bay, what a beautiful evening!

Ok, she didn’t actually
stand up on the wave,,, but HELLO!!! Little Miss Scard-y-pants in the ocean, on a surfboard and catching a baby tiny wave! Counts as surfing to me!

I think we caught about five baby waves, and, she wasn't happy that we had to go in and make dinner!

  4. Wow, just wow! I wish we had the weather (and culture!) for this – raising your children by the beach must be wonderful for them 🙂
