It was worth all the trouble I got into over it when I got home as I didn't exactly have permission.
Fast forward to 2001, I've met the love of my life and go to visit and we get out on the water. Heck yeah, I was hooked and it was only starting. Three months later, on my 22nd birthday we got married and I was a boater forever. On the water was just where we both loved being. Maybe I just felt his love for it. I don't know. I just know it was so right and has always been a huge part of our life.
WB - Congrats on all you found and all you have! Never let go!!
One Item I'd like to bring up here (that I hope most - if not all - on TF are blessed with) is good stomachs... i.e. in that we do not
Point in fact
: My son LOVES the water. He was brought up in Maine around and on the water all the time. Well, he married a simply outstanding woman whom he met in Aspen CO a couple decades back when he was executive Chef at Aspen's Ajax Tavern. T'waz love at first sight; a fine grand daughter they provided. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to son while still in Aspen falling madly in love with his wife to soon be - Chris - Chris can not step foot aboard without getting sea-sick. This has created no problems for them other than they do not have a boat... even though living basically on the water in Dana Point CA. I feel for my son. In his 40's now he has grown to accept the fact that water doings aboard boat in not in their lifestyle... so they enjoy other hobbies and fun actions like avid skiing, swimming, running, travel for events and the like. Tobs always knows that if he jones too bad and needs a boat fix that he can always plan a few days to visit dad and my love for a fun boat excursion. Poor Chris turns green on a boat at dock during calm day. Makes me sad for them both, as well as for Helena, their wonderful daughter.
