Photo: Not so alone...

One of my stories...just a few moments in time, but I will never forget the feeling of peace and awe and beauty...kayaking back with a friend from the Broken Group to Toquart, into the thickest fog I have ever experienced.

I was feeling so alone out there on the water in this, when suddenly and so quietly, two porpoises crested the water and dipped slowly and quietly under a circle around us ....I couldn't get over how quiet they were...I felt so blessed to be experiencing this, to be at that place at that moment.

All things so meaningful and important to our world are not always seen or visible at all times.

I wish to share this with my girls one day very soon.
