Today was one of those days when it felt like everything has really come together. Got up, made coffee, practiced some French, and then saw Veronique and I had breakfast and we talked. I then went to my favorite cafe to work and drink some good coffee. I inputted all the data from yesterday and the results continue to be better than expected. Came home, saw Chris and Veronique, made some tea (despite the insane humidity I still drink hot tea in the afternoon), and then headed to the beach for surfing/boogie-boarding around 4:30. Saw some friends at the hotel, talked to them for a bit, and then hit the waves. I was out surfing with a bunch of local kids, barking with them back and forth in French and having a blast catching waves with them. I caught some awesome waves and had some long rides. Warm water, setting sun, and lots of fun rides. Came home to a great dinner and fresh fruit. Can't ask for more. C'était génial!
