Thank you Michelle. If you ever get down this way I'd love to have you come along to some of my favorite places to photograph. Most folks living in the bull's-eye of the hurricane route pray for a miss, however the surfer does not share in this wish. As we approach October the Gulf will churn again, and these athletes will have their day of thrills. They will arrive at first light, grab a corndog and a Coke around noon, and surf until sunset. They are a resilient bunch. #7886103
