scribbled on skin
I section your body
Will I ever get enough?

She will be sending written updates and photos of her adventure throughout the summer.
Paddling is all about rhythm.

My husband Bob and I flew to San Diego a day early for our scheduled Sea of Cortez cruise aboard the MS Statandam. Good thing. Denver’s predicted snow storm blew in that night and blanketed DIA causing flight delays the next morning. We might have, as the saying goes, “Missed the boat!” That said, I never let any of the 557 crew
