Riding the back roads with Alex.

Location: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Time: 10:30 am

Weather: HOT

We're in South Carolina on Myrtle Beach, running into the waves. I love the feel of the ocean. It's easy to swim in, and as long as I watch for rip tides, fun too. A big wave comes in, and Brian yells to me to "ride the wave." I've seen him ride waves and try to get into position. As soon as the wave crests behind me, I start to doggy paddle. The wave catches me, and all of a sudden, I'm riding the wave. I ride the crest of the wave all the way back to the beach. Now I see why Brian likes to ride the waves.

I flop down on the sand after an hour in the surf. Paula comments on how messy I am. It's hard not to be messy on the beach with all the sand and water. Why, it's simply impossible to stay clean and dry.

I shake. Uh, that didn't go over so well.

Brian and Paula bring me to a groomer to get a wash and a trim. Although this is my least favorite thing to do, I have to admit it's worth the dip in the ocean.
