A Saturday morning trip into downtown Cobourg today to visit the Farmers' Market was cool and blustery. After picking up a few things we fortified ourselves with a hot coffee and headed for the beach to have a look-see. It was very reminiscent of the North Sea...past visits to Scotland and Holland sprung immediately to mind. We could see the waves breaking into huge plumes of spray on the end of the wharf and we decided to hop into the car (for protection) and take a closer look.
Imagine our shock and delight to discover this intrepid band of about a dozen wet-suited dudes, oblivious to the cold wind, jumping off the far end of the pier with their surfboards! We were filled with questions...Do they belong to a club?... Or do they just put the call out when that surf's up?... Does this happen often in Cobourg?... Are they crazy??
Whatever the answers, we have to say it made our day!
