You Shall Not Pass

I hit the wall today, and I have the cuts and bruises to show for it. Not literally, of course; well, the cuts and bruises are real. The Tahiti Express ocean current was ripping along and this morning was the first time in years that I was unable to swim through it to the other side. I could approach the current from the side, slide into it and swim as hard as I could, but time after time I was pushed back and out.

So, smart me decided to climb onto the rocks and walk to the other side of the current; which is where the cuts and bruises come in. One good wave and I was history. No way was I going to swim with blood streaming out, so I let the current take me back to the beach and headed in to work. The bleeding has stopped so I am looking forward to swimming on Sunday.

Nice sunset today. A squall passed just as the last light infused the rain with a red glow.
