I probably shouldn’t be telling you this, but David and I always look forward to the “Holiday Reversal”.
Simply put, this means that just when you think the crowds are going to be the absolute worst — Labor Day Weekend, Memorial Day, 4th of July, etc. — it turns out that everyone else has stayed home, probably because they think the beach is going to be too crowded.
It’s an amazing phenomenon.
Of course, there’s also the Double Reversal, which happens when people like us do flock to the beach, thinking it will be uncrowded because everyone else is staying home due to the holiday.
And naturally, there’s the Triple Reversal, which brings us full circle.
Today, smack in the middle of the Labor Day Weekend (which coincides with my very own birthday, by the way!) we did indeed enjoy the good old-fashioned Holiday Reversal.
We capped off our uncrowded session with another traditional holiday activity: shopping the sales. At our favorite surf shop (George’s DBC Ride Shop in San Clemente) I scored a great pair of sandals and a new (used) 6’0″ Bourton from Australia.
Happy Birthday, indeed!
