A weekend’s misery…turned around…
My god!! Friday night was horrible! I missed an incredible day knocking back a few beers with some great friends, a massive night out with some other of the real ones, all swapped for cold sweats and sleepless dreams of thoughts I don’t know where or how or why they came from. Sometimes sorrowful, other times not! It was not a fun one and on Saturday morning I wondered, groggy down to the SLSC for a lemon/ginger/honey hot water to try to quell the burning of my chaffed throat, to see the most perfectly fun left hander reeling off from out the back to the shore. It was exactly how I like it. 3-4ft of sunshine, barreling fun. I was so dizzy and uninspired I didn’t even take my camera from its bag for a surfing photo.. I tried to have a paddle and after not being able to duck dive one wave, due to lack of energy, came back ashore and home to bed! It was a shocking start to my last weekend here in Beautiful Currumbin.
After another wasted day, I had to get out of the bedroom and mustered all my strength to go for a walk alone the beach. I am so happy that I did for a few reasons. One, I cleared my head. Two, I lucked onto the right light for a couple of nice long exposures and Three, I stumbled onto a technique I have wanted to do for a long time. So after getting home, wringing the sweat out of my shirt and showering I slept right through to 5.30 Sunday and got up to get the sunrise. It was a long day today but the pillow will be good in a few hours when I hit it, a little sunburnt but feeling a whole lot better than yesterday!
I realised also that its good to get out and do something instead of brooding at home feeling sorry for yourself and for me, that afternoon walk kicked this flu’s arse. I would never had gone for that walk without my camera and that great feeling of going through the few shots I took and loving them all! I will put ALL the shots I took up as later I can remember how, when and why I took them!
