Naturally, when planning the Christmas vacation, I had without a doubt planned in my head a few surf sessions with dad, brother in law, & friends. Although, now I have a baby in the womb & am not so positive it's a good idea at this moment in time. I already know that if the surf is big (which it very well could be.. it's time for winter swells mind you..) it's not even worth it. But if it's nice & tempting, I want to know what my doctor thinks. I will be asking her next Monday, & will come back to you with the verdict. Regardless, I plan on at least frolicking in the ocean, because that's what I do.. and it's a part of me, and I need to take advantage while I'm home! So we will see. But you bet your butts that whenever I visit next summer (waves are always tiny) I will definitely be out there knee paddling on a longboard and catching waves, swollen belly & all! I love you oh great Pacific!
