ABC Wednesday / X and Y

This youthful lifeguard carries an egg-yoke colored life buoy as he keeps a watchful eye on the x-treme surf conditions at the Newport Wedge in southern California this weekend.
The high surf was generated from a storm off of New Zealand, thousands of miles across the Pacific Ocean.

The theme is Y this week...
I am including the letter X because I missed it last week.

I just saw the waves on the news last night. Quite amazing for your area. I like your choices for both X and Y.
Have a great weekend.

Notice the jacket he's wearing... will we ever see the sun here in So. Calif? Still waiting for summer.

Colorful capture. This photo tells quite a tale.

pretty though..
I would rather have the extreme waves than our extreme heat.

The surf must be really powerful having traveled so far from New Zealand.

Like feeling the effects of a butterfly's wings, we get the storms from way, way across the ocean. Amazing and your photo is wonderful. I would enjoy looking out at that ocean. Have a great weekend Carolyn.
