Kauai 2007

My apologies for dropping off the face of the earth. From the title you can probably gather that I am finally on my vacation! I flew into Kauai Tuesday afternoon and have been enjoying the beautiful scenery since. Meg and I did find some surf and have been having a great time getting to know the Cowells-like break. It's a long paddle out to the reef break, and it's a nice slow mellow wave, just like we're used to. We were having some surf wax issues, but went down to the surf shop and I experimented with some different one... we are good now.

It's been raining off and on, but the weather is just great! We haven't really gone anywhere... we've been content hanging around the house we rented along with Meg's family, and going surfing and hanging out at the beach. The vain of our existence below: Food, beer, and surfwax.

In spite of a couple of freak-out moments this week, I'd have to say that everything is going quite well. I feel so fortunate and know that the time that I have given has been such a wonderful gift. My 4th of July was just amazing, as was most of this weekend. The girl I am seeing is just great, so much that I hardly can put into words my gratitude and happiness. Such a gift.
The surf has gone down a bit after a week of south swell. There were way too many people out this weekend, so I didn't even bother. I've been pretty darn occupied anway, though I did surf 6 days in a row last week. No complaints! Life is just sweet...
