Yesterday evening, after I wrote my previous blog post, my mom and I had a spanish lesson with Bibiana, a friend of Shawn. After that, my mom, Teja, and I had dinner and went to bed.
Today was the second day of the Esplai beach activity camp. The first thing we did at the camp today was kayaking. I was in a Kayak with 2 other kids and a camp instructor. We had a lot of fun on the Kayaks, and there were countless water-fights.
After our Kayak got back to the port, we had lunch. Then, we went to the beach. We swam, played football (soccer), and did body surfing. Everybody had a blast. Literally, people were blasting each other with water.
Then we went back to the port. The camp instructors split the kids into two groups. Each group got into small inflatable boats called 'unsinkable insubmersibles'. The boat I was in was a 20 horsepower boat and the other boat was 25 horsepower. Just to give you and idea of how much 1 horsepower is, your average car is around 200 horsepower. So obviously these boats aren't going to be that fast.
Wrong. The camp instructor that was in the same boat as me gunned the boat to full throttle, and we sailed onto the ocean as smooth as butter. JUST JOKING! The ride was so bumpy and fast, my butt would bounce 4 feet into the air and then land on the deck of the boat. Have you ever imagined what it would be like to jump off the golden gate bridge? This was kind of the feeling I had in mind. I was totally not expecting this. I mean, I've driven a 50 horsepower boat before, and it was nowhere near as bumpy. Maybe it's some weird European measure of power that isn't horsepower. I don't know. All I know is that I was had a blast that day, literally.
