Boys no longer,
one is 25 and the other turns 18 in two weeks.
I am thankful for the island that nurtured them
and the sails that take them to far shores…
After a lot of work.
This is Tobias’ and Justine’s boat, the Waterbear,
She was built by Albert Ottison.
With fine craftsmanship in every detail.
Months of work and she’s almost ready.
There was something wrong with the sails
but Tobias figured it out.
I love that about my boys,
No whining, just do the job
and do it right.
Then sail away,
