Derek recently turned 38. His birthday celebration was delayed a week when he was stranded in Surigao City because of bad weather and big waves. When he returned, the weather cleared on Sunday for our staff to have a special bonding time with the Surfer Youth Group around the northern tip of our island. A fun day was planned with lots of eating, which is always a blessing during rainy season when food is scarce. The guys all enjoyed time in and out of the surf.
