Seems the two activities I do in my retirement years are getting more popular and crowded. (Surfing/Skiing)
What a fun day. Pat went surfing during a spectacular sunrise over Diamond Head. Then after a run around Diamond Head hooked up with T.J., Lydia, and Ali for morning snacks. Then Pat went back out in the afternoon to do Stand Up Paddle Board Surfing with Manny and his daughter. Then Happy Hour and Sunset.
