Water Activities

The Aquarium.  It was pretty much a Sea-World.

The Aquarium.  It was pretty much a Sea-World.

Ok So the whole surfing again did not happen.  The thing with trying to surf in the medditeranean is that there has to be a big storm in the sea.  Which during the winter happens quite often but not in the summer.  I got one day of surf and that was pretty cool.  It was the day after it rained a ton and the weather was windy and stormy all day. It cleared up in the afternoon though, which is when I should of surfed but not knowing and the beach being a 20 minute bus ride away it didn't happen.  So the next day after class and hearing there was some was the night before I grabbed my shortboard(thank bobo it worked good) threw in the fins and waxed it up with some tropic wax.  YES! tropic wax.  The water sits around 80 degrees right now it is beautiful.

So back to the day board ready to go I rush out of the house and to the closest bus stop.  Already not exactly being the most Spanish looking person with long blonde hair I was quite the show for people walking by.  The bus was around 17 mins away, number 2 to the beach.  Hop on the bus with my surfboard, getting the funniest looks I stood their in the same spot as the bus swell full with people then emptied like the tide. I was at the beach I ran down to where my German friends were at the beach.  Everyone looked at me, who surfs in Valencia.... dropped my stuff down I was too excited and forgot the sunscreen, sorry mom, and ran out with joy to the smallest but still surfable ways.  People looked they stared they pointed.   In the end I caught maybe five to six waves, did not do a turn but had a blast.  
So why did I not surf again well that is because the last storm was not big enough to produce waves.  I am stoked to have done that at least once though.

The aquarium is amazing in Valencia.  In fact it is the biggest one in all of Europe.  It is really similar to Sea World back home but unlike Sea World it is extremely good with the animals as they have a dolphin show that we attended that is truly amazing.  It is synchronized swimmers and dolphins together!!

For now Good Bye see yah tomorrow.
