Leopard Shark Last Night

The water is SO warm right now. Only one other time in all my time on the Pacific Coast. Especially when sun-warmed water is flowing out of the lagoon. 60, maybe even 65 degrees. We are stylin! Couldn’t swim due to rib injury but I just went in the ocean and floated. Such a difference from normal. Oh, you guys that live where the water’s warm — ecstasy. To be able to swim relaxed, no tight wetsuit.

    A fisherman caught this little (3′-4′) leopard shark. It had never occurred to me how beautiful they are. I mentioned this to a surfer friend who was there and he said, Yeah that’s true. It had been hooked in a fin. The fisherman got the hook out and it took off out into the sea. There’s just so much going on in the world every day!
