I pushed the boat away from the dock and watched my son Guy, his wife Sarah, and my grandson Kristjan sail off to a 5 day trip through Puget Sound and the Canadian Gulf Islands.
The boat needed a lot more fixing then I”d realized. My electrician son fixed all the lights and installed a new bilge pump. We also built a safety net all around the boat to protect Kristjan.
After nearly two days repairing the boat and waiting for good weather, they finally got underway.
As I watched them leave the slip and head out I was reminded what a wonderful blessing they are for me.
I am thrice blessed as Guy’s Dad, Sarah’s Father-in-Law, and Kristian’s Afi (Icelandic for Granddad).
