Canoodling all over the world…

…it’s a tough job – but somebody has to do it – Ireland, England, Surfugal, Sri Lanka, Canadialand and now the Good Ol’ United States of America. All recent venues for the ongoing chronicles of Tango and Penfold.

We’ve just returned from Oregon after a long weekend sampling the delights of the beautiful Pacific Coast Highway. Cannon Beach, Manzanita and a few days in Pacific City. We also had the good fortune to make Blogworld a bit more real by meeting Gaz and Surftwin for beers on the beach and an overdose of Mexican food.

A few mornings ago Surftwin very kindly dragged me out of bed for an early morning taste of ice-cold glass giving me a chance to see their surfing finesse up close.

I’ve discovered surfers in the Pacific NorthWest to be some of the most hardcore, crazy people I’ve met who brave freezing water all year round in the search for waves. They are also the most friendly, welcoming and generous. Complete strangers lent me a wetsuit (thicker than the one I brought), gloves (tried one session without – bad idea) and even a board (thankyou Chris – you are a star). Fantastic…

There are a few more pictures over at my flickr pages.

I didn’t surf today. I still have hypothermia but Tango has lent me a nice cardigan…
