I've been feeling out of sorts lately for reasons I can't put a finger on, so I took a break to clear my head and decided to go check out the waves - one of those things I always say I really should do more often. It was cold for the beach and rain was threatening off in the distance, making an ominous purple sky at the horizon; but overhead, the clouds had a warm glow from the sun that occasionally peeked out. As often happens when a storm is near, the waves were especially big. And with the cold temperatures, there was hardly anyone at the beach except the surfers. They must love it when its their own private beach like that.
