DAILY SPRINTER LIFE UPDATE:
Life in Huanchaco is chill.
AM sessions set it off. Lately I’ve been taking advantage. There is usually nobody else in the water and the sun has yet to burn off the foggy marine layer. It’s a very peaceful time to be in the ocean.

The afternoons are good too though. The sun is out and it’s still not crowded.

I remember surf sessions in SoCal where I stopped counting the other surfers in the water when I reached 100. Although we miss friends and family a lot, we don’t really miss the USA, and certainly not the crowds.
Stevie has been busy making new friends in our temporary new home town. She threw her second dinner party the other night. In addition to Julio and Lauren, we welcomed Choco and Kelly. He’s local and she is from Amsterdam.
Stevie’s fish taco dinner was amazing, and we ended with a perfect flan for desert.
I started off with gin, but by later in the night I’m not sure what they were pouring. It was the color of blood. Whatever it was it made my eyes turn red.
In good form, I was the last one standing at the end of the night…
It was a great going away party for my Mom. She left this week and headed back to Seattle. Her visit flew by. We were SUPER sad to see her go.
I’m not terribly optimistic that anyone else will come visit. Although we sent out invitations, we haven’t received any takers. It seems that everyone is always excited about the idea, but then the reality sets in when they start researching plane tickets and realize that we are essentially half way around the world.
And so it is.
