We have lived here for 7 months (crazy) and I had yet to step foot in the Pacific Ocean. Not even a toe dip. It's the end of July and most surfers here are still wearing wetsuits that's how chilly it is. Since it usually doesn't get unbearably hot here, there really is no need for me to cool off in the ocean. In a moment of weakness, I promised B that I would finally go in the water this past weekend. I was thinking waist deep, but my friends had another idea in mind.
Hated it...and ran right back out...
...then got yelled at for being a wimp.
Gave it one more shot...
...and was dunked completely under the water!
But I survived!
I feel so thankful to have met such cool people out here, military and non military. Even more thankful to have this wonderful beach to fill up our weekends!
