  • From the water you could see Ginger sitting among the rocks watching each of us take wave after wave. Eric Soderquist smiles as he checks in on Ginger. Not many dogs are willing to sit patiently as their owner scores an evening surf. As each surfer begins to paddle in Ginger approaches to check if they are Eric, but as usual Eric is the last one out of the water this evening. He finally makes it into the rocks where Ginger sits, her tail wagging ecstatically. Both greet each other knowing there is nowhere else they would rather be.
