A passing conversation with a San Diego Lifeguard this morning:
John, “I love the spray coming off the top of the waves in the wind this morning!”
Lifeguard, “Spindrift? Yeah.”
John, quietly to himself, “Wait, spindrift is something other than a street name??”
February 17, 2017: Big, clean surf. Winds gusting to 50 MPH. Spindrift!
