I have never been on a surfboard.
I've lived in Southern California since the age of 7.
A good portion of those years were spent in a town that actually had the word 'beach' in it.
I don't think I've ever lived more than 20 minutes from the ocean....even during college.
There was the year and a half that Joe and I lived in Texas right after we were married.
We were completely landlocked....
and I developed a strange obsession with lighthouses.
I bought lighthouse ornaments, plates, pictures, placemats, puzzles....very strange.
