The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

I had to go down to Stoney Creek today and make some service arrangements for the bike.  Nothing major, just the usual pre riding season upkeep.  As always I take my camera along cause you never know.  It was good and grey and a bit stormy with whitecaps coming in off of the lake under the Skyway.  The port was looking nice a smoky so I figured it was a good time to get some industrial shots on my way back.  The Fisherman’s Wharf is closed to parking so I had to park up across the road closer to the lake walk.  It was hovering about Zero Celsius out of the wind so I plugged in the heated jacket, put on the Balacava, the Wool Hat, and the gloves and took a look over the berm at the lake and saw the above fellow surfing, or trying to surf.  The waves weren’t really coming in in sets, more like a general froth of white water.  Judging by how red his face is, It looks bloody cold and while I’m not above being a complete idiot on a bike and riding well past the point of endurance, this just seems like a mad pastime to me but when it moves your soul, it moves your soul and kudos to this guy for not letting a thing like sub zero temperatures get between him and his passion.

Just him and me on the beach. I’m starting to lose feeling in my fingers by this point even with the gloves on.

One from the inner harbour.

Looking back towards the Hamilton side of the bridge on the inner harbour side of things.
