today was supposed to be the peak of high surf generated from hurricane marie that’s sitting about 900 miles south of los angeles. i went to the cliffs to take a looksie, and even from 125 feet up they look quite impressive. they looked like 5-10 feet waves, and they certainly stirred up the sand on the coast.
all along the coast there were waves as high as 30 feet. what was once a category 5 hurricane is now only a category 1 with 75 mph winds. i wondered what it would be like if marie was stronger.
from there i took off to the forrestal reserve and did a 4-mile hike. and here are a few words of warning. now that i am not completely obese anymore, just really fat, i have now taken to hiking shirtless to even out the tan. yes, i’m getting to a point where i am a little more comfortable with my body. somewhat. i’m fine with the jiggle as i’m hiking, but on a normal walk i’m still hesitant. but i’m telling you, the farmer’s tan has got to go.
