Looking at that photo of Sally, I was struck by how lovely she is - how groomed and perfectly put together she is, despite being in the ocean and waves. She's gorgeous!
I used to work in retail, in a lovely women's clothes shop, full of this season's silk and lace and wool. I would wear beautiful clothes, dress my eyes in mascara and liner, and my lips in red paint. My hair would be washed and styled (as much as mine can be), my nails painted and clean. But still, I kept my longboard in the corridor behind the shop and as soon as I finished work, I would head to the beach and straight into the water. Within minutes I would have black stains running down my cheeks and lipstick smeared and faded - from perfectly painted to washed out in a moment! Looking tidy and going surfing don't seem to mix for me as well as they do for Sally up there!
