Same place (Hood River.)
Different dog. Different day, different year.
Different rig - now, a Honda Element named Gidget, parks in the driveway. For decades, old Silver the Nissan Pathfinder took us all on so many grand adventures.
It’s not that moment after we came out of the frost and snow of winter into the joy and light of spring.
Now, after that annual rite, came a series of sun-drenched endless summer days. Days we windsurfers, standup paddle boarders, OC-6’ers and other outdoor dogs, live for - all year.
This season, and sun, make me thankful. For every moment and friendship and family moment along the way. Every life adventure - massive, or minuscule; glad or sad.
These moments between moments along the way.
Like going back home to San Diego and seeing mom and dad, now married nearly 65 years!!!
