Chilly air temps, empty streets and empty breaks clue us in that the transition from summer into fall is official on full throttle. Darker nights, colder mornings means a smaller window of waves for the working man during this time of year. Minor hurdles to face for waves. You get used to the chilliness and I'll take clean, empty and cold any day of the year.
I bet maybe one or two people might know where this picture was taken. It's maybe 50 yards from waves.
