It always seems to be this sort of weather
for the

"Sixth Annual Shore to Shore Paddle Race"
From Brighton Beach in Bolinas
to Stinson Beach
it's a long paddle out, in the gray, foggy chop...
As young as nine, and as old as seventy
they paddle all sorts of craft.
 out there with the seals, sharks and sea lions
"You're just part of the food chain"
says Toby.

and afterwards you feel happy
and proud
and glad to be part of it and the sea and miracles
public declaration of love...
congratulations to my son
