Blow Me Down

Ahoy Mates,

     It has been a busy start to 2016, we started January with our first donation drop to Sunrise of Pasco Abuse Shelter…2 Notch went to my friend’s dock and let her know to call me…so off we went to see her at Crystal River…she was happy and wanting to play when we arrived…her daughter brought the new baby to show me…I feel very blessed to be included…

    In February, we were able to complete a donation drop…the first was to Abuse Counseling and Treatment Center of Lee County…practice took place on a windy day off of the islands of Sanibel and Captiva…the dolphins were beautiful and wanted to play…the diversity and population of birds and seashells was amazing…the lighthouse was an interesting structure…

    March has proven to be a busy month…a donation drop was taken to the Sunrise of Pasco Abuse Shelter…practice has been busy…Fort De Soto, Homosassa Springs and the Weeki Wachee River…I saw 2 Notch at the mouth of the Weeki Wachee and expect to see her at Hudson on Friday…pledge forms have been made and e-mails have gone out, we are getting ready for this year’s paddle and it is getting exciting…we have made appearances at the Tampa Outlet Mall in Wesley Chapel and Clearwater Beach…Go daddy called us early in the month to break the news we had to update to a new site and the old site would be wiped was a good deal of work but, the new site is up and running…before I clicked the button, I took one last look at the old site…how far we have come over the last six years and how much work we have done…

    A very nice woman who believes in the work we have been doing was so wonderful as to buy us a new kayak…she knew what I had been going through in attempt to get a new one…she got me a tandem as she doesn’t want me on the water alone (lots of laughs)…it is beautiful but, we have not named her yet…I am ever so thankful and feel very blessed

Carry On,
