I was driving past First Beach in Newport, RI, this past weekend, watching the waves from Hurricane Lee forming an offshore break from a northerly wind. It was peaceful. And it reminded me of the song “Oldest Surfer on the Beach” by Jimmy Buffett.
Appearing on the 2013 album Songs from St. Somewhere, it was written for JB by the great Mark Knopfler. You can’t help but recognize the guitar work by the Sultan of Swing.
As the song fades away, it’s as if an empty board drifts away without the oldest surfer on the beach. Surf on Jimmy.
