The second thing - Cecily wanted to give taking photos a shot with my camera. It is just a tad different then a point and shoot - but really simple and so much fun. I was going to head out with Dill but Ro required my attention at the time so we hung out with Cecily on the point while she took pics. She did an awesome job!!! and well I think she is hooked on this hobby now too. Watch out Matt - I think things are about to get EXPENSIVE - haha.
I was happy I was able to capture a picture of Cecilies moment of falling in love (with body boarding and the ocean) although the photo is far away it is a fun reminder of our awesome day. The later photos in the post are some of Cecilies that I played around with in editing.
Dill was happy to get out and play on some smaller waves again

Cecily catching a nice one
some wave action was picking up
there is something about this photo I love (thanks Cecily) - not sure exactly what but the lighting is really cool, the spray of the waves, the action of dillon paddling hard and of joel going out. It represents what it is like to be out on the water. It is not perfect in regards to focus, color, lighting but that is not always what is important. I did play with the photo a little in editing but only to enhance what was already there or to make it even closer to realistic of what we saw while out there. You will see in photography you have to adjust the coloring at times as cameras do not always capture it just right - but then again we have a human eye and well - a camera is a camera.
where did the wave go??

Here is to a beautiful afternoon, in a beautiful place and learning new things with awesome friends.
Thanks for the fun times Cecily
