Lindsay Graves and I stood in the surf in Nags Head North Carolina waiting for the next wave.
As the tide came in they came at us faster and faster. Lindsay was a freckle face girl, and she wore her rubber nose plug round her neck. She was fearless, she was my friend. Thank you Lindsay for braving the waves with me. You were one tough cookie.
I don't think we ever got strong enough to handle the North Shore waves in Hawaii. That is a different ball game. These relentless waves crash hard on a rocky shore. I think even Lindsay would have opted for a beach chair and a PBJ.
