"Yallingup is famous for it's surfing beach." Yallingup by Purpleshade

My claim to fame in Yallingup is that I got dumped by a big wave....only I was not surfing.
I was trying to stop my over-eager young son (who had only just learned to swim and had not stopped to read the warning board) from rushing into big "dumpers" with his new body board.
I was only chest deep in the water but a HUGE wave broke over me, turned me upside down and cracked my head on the bottom. I was totally disoriented and as I struggled to stand up, another caught me and dragged me under again.
My daughter was near me and tried to help me stay upright.
She was a little peeved that my husband reached us before the 2 gorgeous young surfy lads who were watching from the beach and were rushing to our aid.

    I can't get in either. I think I may have to reboot my computer or something. :-(
