heh heh – well I hoped that it would have made something more pronounceable. But it was really was just another evening at The Pipe (Friday). Well no – I had two magnificent waves. Wunderbar actually. When this happens I get just an inkling of why people kick their day jobs to surf. Man!
I left the water when it started getting to busy with people coming from the office. And I set up on the beach. For some reason I wasted a lot of time drawing and fiddling with gear before I got down to it. But with the time in hand it was not a problem and I had time to chat with passers by. Eventually I got going and decided to put in two figures. One chap marched past and I was able to capture something of his walk. Later two girls walked past arm in arm and I gave my chap a companion. It was all so pleasant. A friendly local couple agreed to take some photos of me painting, for my website. Here is one:
Sweet kid came out of the water and spent a long time watching my painting.
And here is the painting:
I hung around and chatted and put in some finishing touches till it was almost dark before packing up.
Here is a photo of the view looking the other way just before I left:
that is the fence over the pipe with Table Mountain in the background.
