surfing at sunset
surfing after a big lunch of mashed potatos, pork loin and asparagus isn't recommended, but i went out to pampilla this afternoon, which is nice and easy, so fortunately i didn't get stomach cramps from surfing on a full belly. it was late in the day and i watched the sunset behind the islands off the port of callao. there were lots of waves and the swell has been about 7.5 feet for days now, which is a sign that winter is here and summer is gone. there is nothing like watching sunsets over water, which is in part why i love the west coast of the americas. the late summer sunsets here are awesome, with just enough thin patchy clouds that the light refracts off to create hues that are rich and deep.
