My Top Threes

Sitting around on a bright-blue day watching a 27-knot wind weave tracks out on the Strait. Keeping the fingers crossed that things will ease off for the afternoon, but in the meantime I figured I'd follow the lead of the good people at Pinniped, and Wine and Woodsmoke and put together a surf-related Top Three post.
