Dreams

You can see in the corner by my living room window I have a new addition - a kayak paddle. I got this in the mail yesterday from my youngest son Trevor as a birthday gift. I've always tried to support Trevor in pursuit of his dreams and ambitions and I am so very proud of the young man he has become - and now it appears he is supporting me in mine. I mentioned to him that I wanted to get an ocean kayak because this place is the perfect place for one - most days Dutch Harbor is flat calm, and it offers the opportunity to see seals, sea lions, whales, puffins and other sea life on a daily basis. I've always wanted to kayak in the ocean, since I was a teenager, so thank you Trevor for listening and giving me a nudge . . . . within a year the paddle won't just be sitting by the living room window . . . .

I'm glad the gift made it to you and you liked it. I thought if you had the paddle you'd have no excuse not to get the kayak and make a trip out on the ocean. Hopefully i'll be able to kayak out there with you some day. Happy B-day pops!

That is one sweet looking paddle you got there. I thought he had a good idea there. Maybe sometime next year we will see you on the ocean.
