Windsurfer

We had our regular Monday Night Meetup in Safety Harbor tonight and it would've been a good meetup if it hadn't rained off and on all evening.

The highlight of the night was this guy trying to windsurf in the pouring rain. He didn't get caught in the rain; he went out after it started to rain hard. He wasn't very good at it. It took quite a few tries before he made it out of the channel into the open water. First of all, he has sneakers on and I don't know how he'd have swam in them. There was no wind to speak of, and it was raining. He fell a few times as we watched and of course, we kept right on shooting.

If you look at his face closely, he doesn't look very happy. I'm not sure if it was because we were taking his picture while he was looking stupid, or if he was feeling stupid, or just inadequate. Either way, his face says it all.

After we shot enough of him, we all headed to Crispers for a bite to eat, since the Whistle Stop is all outside and we didn't want to get rained on while we ate. It cleared up after we got done eating and there still was some light, so we headed right back to the Marina to shoot Kathy's disabled squirrel and Biz.

Even with the rain, it was a pretty good meetup.
