Darren and I got up before first light. We wanted to get to the beach early so I could try to catch the sun coming up over the ocean and he could catch a few waves before everyone else came out to surf the hurricane produced sets of waves. Irene was not close enough to cause any major problems here in the Charleston area. I never did get a picture of him surfing because by the time the sun came up he was way down the beach.
This is my favorite
