Today was a great day!!(pics included)

Thread Starter 
Today was quite possably the best day of the year for me so far. Not only was it the first day of summer, Happy summer everybody but it was also National Go Skateboarding Day!

My DH and I spent the day in Pacific Beach with about 300 other people all on skateboards. We rode the whole boardwalk, about 3 miles one way, all as a group. It was totaly awsome. It was abeautiful day at the beach and the stoke was high. Sector Nine Skateboards ran the event. They had a poker run, basicly evryone was given a card and had to stop at checkpoints along the way and pick a playing card from a bag to get a hand, I got a pair of nines, I didn't have a winning hand but it was still fun. I got a sunburn and my legs hurt but boy was it ever the best day and a great way to celebrate the first day of summer and the stoke of the board. the whole group had their picture taken for Life Magazine too, keep your eyes out for it.

The crowd at the first check point/ registration table.

Wow DH and I used to live in PB right by Mission Bay, we used to walk around that bay every night. We used to live on Reed Ave right behind the Bay Walk then we bought a condo in Mission Valley right by Fashion Valley mall.
DH was stationed at Camp Pendleton did 22 years in the Navy, but when he retired he was to young to retire and there just wasn't any good jobs there for him so we sold the Condo and moved north some. Its still Beautiful there as I can see... I sure don't skateboard My Grandson does though, DH used to roller blade I tried riding the bike on the bay walk but I was always so afraid I would knock someone over. I bet its really crowded there now. You guys looked like you were having fun Pictures are great Thanks for Sharing

Looks like a fun day. I have always wanted to learn how to skateboard, but I am such a klutz I would strain or break something!
