Each week, I eagerly await the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge that asks bloggers to share appropriate images based on that week’s theme.
As I anticipate my last weekend at the Sacramento River delta, I keenly recall animated conversations during the late winter and early spring of how we were going to spend every weekend windsurfing. “Best laid plans” and how quickly time flies!
While we anxiously waited and dreamed of our new season, I am sharing some older photos that have been waiting to see the light of day and work for the theme of windsurfing and Waiting.
Waiting for ??

Waiting to Sail
This photo taken by my husband (with my phone) illustrates the wait and the fear involved in ocean windsurfing.

Waiting for Fish
While campers wait for the late morning winds, pelicans wait for their breakfast in La Ventana, Mexico, a winter windsurf venue.
More Waiting for Wind
Smart windsurfers use their non-windy times wisely by enjoying a SUP session.
Waiting for a Weekly Cigar
Hubby and some friends love their weekly cigar after a weekend on the water. I included this because of the surf motif of the ashtray.
What does waiting look like to you? I will leave you with this quote (author unknown):
“Two of the hardest tests in life: The patience to wait for the right moment, and the courage to accept that you have waited for nothing.”
