Back from vacation! Had a fabulous time with the family at beautiful Punta Cana! Made great memories and even checked off some items on my bucket list! What better way than to enjoy the beach in the early morning than by going on a bare foot run with my all grown up nephew! As I ran through the water thoughts of my dad and Chariots of Fire ran through my mind. Exhilarated I looked at my side, running in sinc with my Godson, the first grandson, my sisters first born, the first boy to enter the Trujillo clan The adrenalin was so great I could have kept running forever! It didn’t stop there. For sometime now I’ve been wanting to learn how to surf. I guess my obsession with Gidget & Moondoggie was taking its toll When I read an article not too long ago about a woman who learned how to surf at age 40 on the Jersey Shore I became determined! Alex & I were going to take lessons last year but that fell through. When we learned of an opportunity to learn to surf in Punta Cana we jumped at it! We signed up with the Macao Surf Camp at once. I never thought you could actually surf in the Caribbean water, but you can! The waves are great for beginners like me. The beach was GORGEOUS, the instructors were GREAT, & I had an AWESOME workout in the process! I had the time of my life with my two boys….Alex & Max I did it! I caught a wave! One of the most amazing feelings I have ever felt! I felt as if I was actually standing on water! All I remember is saying to myself, “feel that B, feel…..” as I rode the wave I plan on taking more lessons here in NJ, and plan to make it out West someday. Its never too late to follow your dreams…I am a huge believer of that. With thoughts of Malibu & Hawaii running through my mind, I say kawabunga baby! I’ll see you soon Big Kahuna
Today I say…Never say Never! Make it yours, Make it Great! Enjoy the Journey & Grab your wave!
Besos y Abrazos…xoxo ”…..Barbara por Atras, Barbara por Alante, y Siempre Barbara por Adentro!”
