Got lots of comments on my mini rant a few days ago, all positive, seems I hit a nerve…. …… all I will say on that now, is that there seems to be a person with some “issues” , has deep conversations with himself and will “engage” others, who lately has been going up to IB on the weekends.

I only do that on weekdays! someone else is handling the weekends…… and, I have excellent conversations with my self and also answer my self as well……. mark mekenas email@example.com www.cannonbeachsurf.com | www.bfdsurf.com

Got out early with Gordon….. surf was better, got smaller as the tide went out…. only one other guy out, he had the north end, so we took the center… you know, that etiquette thing…..W/NW 3-4ft @ 8 sec’s today with light N winds, should get some sunbreaks later this morning, and a high in the low 60s…. water temp 53-55….. was nice! Damn minus low tide at 8:30a, high tide at 3p.
Sunday looks about the same, the damn minus low tide at 9a, and high at 3:45p. W3-4ft At 10 sec’s with light NW winds. Monday WSW 3ft with light N/NE winds (next time I will be in the water) Tuesday W 3ft with Light S winds. Wed. SW 4-6ft with S winds 15-20mph. Thursday W8ft with SW winds 10mph…….
Soooooo about time for a mini rant….. had a friend who got a load of crap from one of our “I own the beach” locals….. not a young guy, but an older guy….. this is even more embarrassing for our town…. for no good reason, he had to paddle south to give our friend a load of crap about respecting him and his family because he lives here…… we know who he is, and I do look forward to listening to the other side of the story, as our friend never had a chance to get a wave, drop in on him, or even get in his royal way….. I do have to say, we do have a few CB locals that do try to give attitude to visitors, and these idiots don’t understand who supports them…… our town, like most on the coast have one industry…. Tourism… this supports the hospitals, hotels, landscapers, every one who lives here….. we did have a chance to have another industry, but the do gooders shot that one down….. This being said and understood, those who DEMAND respect, usually don’t get it, respect is something earned….. anyone with some military background understands that concept. IF one happens to live here, and constantly gives grief to our visitors, maybe they should take a good look at how they are allowed to live in such a great place. This morning, while I was out in the water, I thought about the situation yesterday….. then I thought just how lucky I am to live and work in such a place, and have some good friends who also live and work here….. sitting outside, looking at the light house, the trees, Tillamook Head……. Damn, IT JUST DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!! And yes, it is OK to share it…….. (But, Etiquette…… learn it, use it, and if you happen to screw up, at least man up and apologize….. and most importantly, keep a smile on your face…… then they don’t know what you are thinking….)
