Still waiting for my board to come back from the repair shop, so I rented a 7′ soft top from Pura Vida in Philomath. Went out with Mary and Dan in seventy degree temps under clear blue skies. Gorgeous day. Waves were a little lumpy, but with enough punch to make up for it. Squinted into the sunset and watched swooping gulls while waiting for the evening waves. Lovely.
