My Guy....


I don't normally post pics of my kids on this blog but I just had to share this one with you all because I'm just so proud of my little Joe. Here we are, in the middle of a Byron Bay winter, and he's out in the surf riding the waves. Joe's only just taken up surfing and already he's standing up on his board like a pro! Would you believe that the day this photo was taken, he was surfing with a pod of dolphins - who were swimming through the waves only a few metres from his board. He's loving it so much, that he's even inspired me to give it a go! Roll on summer...

Looks like he has the surfing gift. Good balance, a good eye for a wave, swimming with dolphins...what more could you ask as a young boy?

Where's the pic of you surfing!!!

Barb Fisher said...

So jealous! I'm stuck down here enduring a cold Canberra winter and Joe is learning to surf with dolphins! Not fair!

On another note, I just received my copy of Inside Out in the mail. As soon as I saw the cover, I knew it was your work! Gorgeous.

Damn, when do I get to move to Byron Bay? :)

Hi Barb,
Thanks for your note. I haven't seen Inside Out yet - am dying to see how it all looks. Glad you like it.

HI Shannon, Joe rocks! I remember going to surfing school when I was young and there is no feeling like having a wave underneath you. Like riding life itself. I understand Joe. lovely photo. Thanks Carla x
