Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts." - Charles Dickens
Winter Solstice is upon us and checks in with early frost in the lowlands and now temps in the upper 30s. The shortest day followed by the longest night will begin the turnaround to a few more minutes of light going forwards. But remember - as the days lengthen the cold strengthens so bundle up and stay warm. We do have perfectly clear skies and light NE winds signaling a bit of warmth due today. Still a stable NW swell in play but with a shorter phase rendering it more peaky and sneaky than predictable. Moderate to higher tides throughout the daylight hours have roller reduction designs, but a careful overview will enlighten suitable options.
CHANNEL: Cold approaches and chilled down waters as we reach normalcy for the North Pacific. Burnished surfaces with risen sun and cleaned up nicely by nurturing winds. Again, not fully energized be it swell angle, tide or crystal alignment. Only inner Channel bar rights to ride - but that's not really a bad thing. Bring a log, catch the ripples.
PATCH: Partially present and decidedly improved from previous performances. Enough water to cover rocks and allow for some of the NW to flow freely and engage. Mini marcher rights efforting to achieve may well reach the knee if not slightly above.
