John's B Day weekend in Seal Rocks

Just us and the waves out here

I recently spent a weekend up the coast a couple hours in Seal Rocks to celebrate a friend's birthday.  It was a lovely weekend with warm weather, beautiful scenery, and decent waves.

It being mid winter we opted to stay in a holiday home rather than camp out.  It had a wood stove AND a trampoline, both of which which we used liberally.

Hanging out by the fire


A mixture of beer, wine, and bourbon which was cited as "not as bad as you think"
Also due to it being the off season the area was mostly deserted.  This lead to vacant beaches and lots of solitude.

We spotted dolphins and whales both days while down at the beaches.  One of the times the dolphins put on a surfing display in the exact location where we had bee ourselves surfing only minutes earlier.  They were certainly the superior wave riders.

John got a sweet longboard for his b-day and put it to heavy use.  We went out surfing both days at at times were the only people visible both in the water and out.

I am having a terrible time here

Saturday evening rapidly devolved (or evolved perhaps?) into debauchery when someone - not me this time, i swear - had the idea to play beer pong.  Lacking ping pong balls we made due with some trivial pursuit dice scavenged from a games cabinet.

I am happy to say that I teamed up with my American brethren, Trent to dominate all comers.

It went in.  You know this.

The ecstasy of victory....
....And the agony of defeat
 Andy was also very excited to test out his relatively new 4WD, getting bogged to the point that he needed to be pulled out only once.  Luckily a kind strange in an equally huge vehicle came along right as the mosquitos started coming out and sun was setting.  Simon was smart enough to take some photos of the event before hitchhiking back to the house to form a rescue team.

Yeah.....looks pretty stuck

Never too early to start the discussion of "who should we eat first"

It was a great weekend and summer teased us by letting out some warm weather and water.  Can't wait for the real deal in a couple months.
