As I prepare to close up the office for the next four days, I want to make sure I write a post wishing all of our loyal blog readers an incredibly wonderful holiday. Whether you are traveling far and wide to see friends and family or you’re staying home to celebrate, all of us at Surf Camp wish you the very best. I will be home with my husband and two dogs, as well as a couple friends who will be away from their families as well. A walk on the beach will be part of my Christmas Day because to me, this is a meaningful way to enjoy the beauty of the holiday. With the waves lapping the shore and hardly a soul around (although since it will be 70 degrees tomorrow, there may be a few folks out), I can truly appreciate the moment. I will be thinking of my family- mother in New Mexico, father in Thailand, and sister in Delaware- and remembering all the Christmas celebrations we had when I was young. Ah, the memories!
I spoke with someone yesterday who purchased a Gift Surftificate for his nephew to attend Surf Camp, and the uncle was so excited to give it to him for Christmas! His nephew lives here in Wilmington, and his uncle wants to introduce him to surfing “the right way.” I also spoke to a mom in Minnesota (where it was 14 below 0-gulp!) and she has always dreamed of learning to surf. She is going to treat herself to either our Adult Caribbean or Womens Only Camp in 2009. She’ll leave the kids at home with dad while she fulfills her dream. Talking to people such as Sam and Tracy makes me feel that much more blessed that I am part of something as great as Surf Camp, where we provide the opportunity for everyone to experience the feel of surfing in Mother Ocean.
Mele Kalikimaka, Happy Hanukah, Feliz Navidad, and Merry Christmas to all!!!!
