The other day while driving up A1A, I caught some remarkable video of a thunderstorm over the ocean. (I still have to put that footage online.) As I was recording, a woman came up and asked, “Did you record the two waterspouts about a mile back?” I dropped the f-bomb and told her I didn’t see them. Damn, I never saw one, yet alone two, and would have loved the opportunity to capture that.
Anyway, today I’m sitting enjoying the weather at the beach, when my eye caught something a little strange. Now, I’ve seen people do the horizontal mambo at the beach before, but this was even stranger. After all, sex on the beach is so popular they named a drink after it, but this….. well, I don’t know.
I grabbed my camera and started filming. Was it some type of new-age way to get in touch with one’s inner-self? Maybe some form of meditation? Perhaps it was practice for the Rotary Club’s presentation of Swan Lake?
When I showed the footage to my friend Joaquin, he summed it up pretty good, “Dude, the guy’s trippin’!”
Trippin’, Swan Lake, meditation, whatever it is, it’s a reminder for me to always have that camera ready to capture moments like these.
