It has come to my attention that the Nike US Open of Surfing 2011 is starting up this weekend so be fore warned that traffic, hodads, creatures of the night, a little bit of everything will be descending on HB for the next week to ten days.
Probably not any different that any other summer weekend at the beach.

Anyone interested in some tomatoes? The heirloom ones are groovy (sorry couldn't resist), the Roma's are volunteers from last year and the delicious dots to the right are Sun Golds
