On Sunday, Brian is preaching at one of our supporting churches which is near the beach and so we took up the offer of our very good friends to stay at their beach house for the weekend. Brian grew up in Seal Beach, a block away from the ocean and so he learned how to surf when he was young. He has this great Bruce Jones long board and each of the kids managed to stand up and ride a wave. Allison held his hand, but she stood up! He showed them how to wax the board so that your feet have something to grip onto. Some folk were watching from the Seal Beach pier and were cheering when the kids got going.
They all tried to boogie board as well. Ami and Brad, despite the mounds of sand in their swimsuits, were well pleased with the waves they rode.
