halloween costume and surf in the Fall

It's hard to see, but Robby's on the blue longboard.
I decided to make a Halloween costume for monet this year.  She's a mermaid.  Not to be cheap (because I definitely am) but I couldn't find anything I really liked.  The thing that does bug me is that it ends up costing almost more to make clothes these days, but I had so much fun.   
I love the change of seasons.  It's been foggy in the mornings in Huntington.  I took these of Robby longboarding by the pier.  I rode my bike down with monet in the bike seat.  The waves were mellow and perfect for walking the board.  It would have been a perfect day for me to surf, but my stomach is a little too big.  If it were really perfect, I guess I could knee paddle.  Robby's pretty excited to be able to walk backwards on his board and not fall off.  
He's the one on the right in this one.

The surf scenes are very amazing. The surfers against gray. I think the costume is very intricate and Monet looks so pleased. Good work.

The waves look fun. Surfing pictures are always a good addition to the blog.
