The waves have finally picked up and for the last couple days Bradley and I have been enjoying some decent sessions on the south facing beaches. These waves are totally getting us psyched for this summer! No matter how much I love the waves back home, there’s nothing like a new challenge from the ocean in unfamiliar environments. So for the last couple days we have been surfing until we were so tired, that picking up our boards and walking back to the car seemed damn near impossible!

Late this afternoon I was finally able to get all the paperwork PDF’d and sent over to the surf camp owner for final approval. It looks like our 2 week European vacation is going to be costing each kid about $1650, and that in addition to the buttload of money they are already spending for the other two excursions. The grand total for the entire summer comes out to such a HUGE number that I was very shocked by the amount of kids we have signed up for this thing! And our itinerary is going to be awesome! 2 days in Portugal, 5 in Spain, 3 in France, 2 in Germany and 2 in the Netherlands.

Bradley and I have also been trying to have some realistic discussions on how we are going to be conducting ourselves during this whole thing. Clearly we aren’t going to run around grabbing each other’s asses and making out in front of all the campers, because that would just be completely unprofessional. But we aren’t sure if keeping our relationship completely private would be for the best or if it could even be an option. We kind of feel like we shouldn’t say anything because what happens when we close our door is nobody’s business but ours, but at the same time people talk! They see things, and they speculate, so this is where we are. Is it better that we just get all the staff together beforehand and let them know what’s up? Or is it better to just keep it professional and try and be as discreet as possible, and if people talk, then fuck’em!?

What I love about Brad more than anything else, is how unapologetic he is about himself. It’s a quality in him that I both respect and admire, but I am not sure if this is something that is actually relevant or helpful to this situation. Well whatever we decide, we still have a few weeks, so there’s no point in stressing out about it tonight.
