Malibu Beach

So yesterday I didn't have to do a whole lot :) Emily from GDB showed up just as we were finishing breakfast, so we talked about our puppies here at camp and how to incorporate them into our routines and activities. Then when she left, the counselors all had to go talk about different characteristics of campers and scenarios that can happen while at camp. Since I'm an "Activity Leader" I did not have to go to this meeting. The plan was for all the activity leaders to go to the beach and set up for our overnighter. Well, once the van was loaded only 8 of the activity leaders fit in the van and there is 13 of us...so I stayed behind. Those of us left behind just talked and had free time for about 2 hours...until the counselors were finished with their meeting and then we left for the beach.

I don't know the name of the beach, but it was in Malibu and it was okay. However, it was very rocky leading to the water, so I didn't get in or anything. It was extremely windy when we got there yesterday afternoon, but that stopped after a while and things were just fine. We had some really really good guacomole (I don't exactly know how to spell that) and I thought I was in heaven...Dad would have LOVED it! We also had hamburgers and Carne Asada for dinner and it was the best food I've had in a LONG time! :) Then once it got dark, we had a campfire which was fun.

I slept under the stars with some of the other staff. We had laid out our sleeping bags earlier before it got dark, and I immediately noticed that it was all wet when I went to get in. I guess it's just very moist here (duh...it's by the ocean) but I'm just not used to that! I slept good though and this morning when I woke up and looked out in the ocean there were a bunch of Dolphins swimming pretty close to the shore...so that was very neat! :)

The nurse is supposed to be coming around 9:30, so I guess I should go brush my hair and look half-decent :)
