In these parts, they name their waves. There's a famous one just around the corner called The Wedge. But, like our mountain, it's not "out" these days. Just ordinary surf, not even that exciting at this south end of the beach. Further north, the surfers are so crowded together - all ages, shapes and sizes - it's amazing they don't all go crashing into each other. From the pier we watch pelicans cruising low over the surf, ducks paddling and diving, gulls hovering on the air, and there, just beyond the mass of wetsuits, small dorsal fins that can only be dolphins.
