Can you believe it’s the last day of 2010? Nor can I… I’m heading down to the beach to see out the year with friends, so here’s an appropriate photo I prepared earlier. Five years earlier, to be exact. No, I’m not so organised that I take photos for you five years in advance, this is one from when a friend and I were taking our first surfing lesson on a beach in Japan. As much as I wish I were cool enough to actually master surfing, the gravel embedded in my knees ensured that that first lesson was also my last. So any subsequent beach photos are more likely to feature leisurely reclining and passive enjoyment of ocean views while soaking up the rays (and simultaneously trying to avoid getting skin cancer)… anyway, happy new year, and see you in 2011!!
