Our housing is pretty nice. It is just barracks, but they are pretty spacious. I share with Krystina. We trained together in San Diego, she was in Germany with me last summer (but at a different part of Wiesbaden), and we ended up here together too- none of that planned. We have two beach volleyball nets outside our barracks, a basketball court, bbq and a nice grass area.
I have 2 counselors- Jake and Lindsay, both from Toledo, Ohio. We all about cried when we walked into our center. We have a huge open space and seem to be the storage place for chairs and tables. We spent some time rearranging what we had and everything turned out pretty nice. The two long walls of our building are mostly windows which is nice since we are right on Rainbow bay. It'll be even better when we do some projects with the campers and get our posters up tonight. A little color will do our building well!
Thursday, the Commanding Officer took all of us on a boat tour around Ford Island and the USS Arizona Memorial.
Friday night was the first night most of us ventured off base. A group of us went to a club/bar called Senor Frogs in Waikiki. Cheered to a fun, successful summer and danced. It was a definite good times. Saturday Krystina, a couple of the navy guys who live on the other side of us and I went to Shark's Cove to snorkel
Today we are just hanging out, relaxing, and catching up on little stuff to be ready for the 1st day of camp tomorrow!!!
Seems like it is going to be an amazing summer...already have a sky diving jump planned, some more snorkeling, kayaking, surfing, hikes, shark cage diving, and hopefully some wind surfing planned...I'm supper excited!
Miss you all and love you!
