No Swell. No Waves.

The ocean has gone flat and the surf forecast shows no sign of life for days to come. We’ve migrated south to Carlsbad where we set up camp behind the best 24 hour fitness in San Diego County. They have a great gym, hot tub, and sauna. Here we will lurk until more South swell arrives. I’m getting a lot of work done and Stevie is studying spanish like crazy. She will be conversationally competent by the time we cross the border on Oct 11th, which will be an enormous bonus for our little tribe. We are both starting to feel excited as our border crossing date gets closer and closer.
