Surfing

I had a very cool experience yesterday. We found out about Kwaj from Kim's friend Ona. Her husband is a surfer and asked me if I was interested in learning to surf. I told him I was and he thought since I have very little experience in the ocean the best way is to spend a fair amount of time body boarding.

We went out yesterday for the first time for a sunrise float. It was pretty awesome. The waves are mello at this time of the year which is great for learning and while we were out we saw a pod of dolphins, cool fish along the reef and a full double rainbow. Not to mention we caught a few waves, I also missed a lot a waves :).

Living out here means missing family, friends and the familiarity of home but it also means doing things that I would never do otherwise and so I find myself thankful for the new experiences of life on Kwaj.
