Spent the last week down in Matunuck as friends were moving out of their rentals and the summer residents began moving back in. It was mostly to give myself a bit of a break from the number of projects I've taken on recently, sit out on the front lawn with my boyfriend, get some sun, and prepare for the summer months. I still brought my camera (of course), and went to sit on the beach one late afternoon as fog rolled in and the air quickly cooled. There was a bit of swell and of course some surfers out on the water to greet it! I also was playing around with my newest lens, the Nikkor 16-35mm VR, and just enjoying the beach. I grabbed a few shots I wanted to share and hope you all enjoy them as well!
Oh, and by the way, had a surf lesson down at Narragansett Beach on Sunday and it was a blast! It wasn't my first time out on a board, third time actually, but it'd been about 6 years since I gave it a try so I figured I was overdue. There wasn't much surf on Sunday, but enough to give my classmate and I a workout! Hour and a half of constant paddling out, small surf in, paddling out, small surf in... Ton of thanks to my awesome instructor Conrad, and my cheering squad, aka the 12-or-so-year-old-girl out surfing too :). It was a whole lot of fun and I definitely plan on doing it again! And of course it brings newfound appreciation and admiration for all of the talented guys I'm trying to snap pictures of out on the water.
