Barrel of Laughs

The boys arrived to a consistent 3 foot swell, and we couldn’t get them in the water quick enough — the first few days were a mix of lefts, rights, beers and laughs, not necessarily in that order. The rise and fall of the swell over the past few days has enabled us to spend some time cruising around the islands, fishing, enjoying the sunset and drinking a few cold ones.

We had a sharp increase of swell yesterday creating great waves out the front of the lodge. It is so handy being able to surf 200m from your bed and not have to get in the speedboat and chase waves amongst the storms that have been rolling through. The next few days looks like a decrease in swell, so perhaps some more fishing and we have a bonfire on the beach scheduled where we will eat what we catch. Let’s hope we don’t go hungry…
