The Gulf of Mexico is usually quite calm and wave-free, but this morning the surf was up...relatively speaking. I don't know how word gets out, but there were about a dozen surfers who convened just after sunrise at the Naples Pier to hit the waves.

The sport reminds me a bit of emergency response careers as it requires patience during the long waits between short spurts of high adrenaline activity - some peaks (often with high risk) and many valleys. Readiness is needed to perform and to cope with the transitions. Guess the resemblances are similar to life, in general, too. Naples Pier, Naples, FL
