Growing up on a lake we had many boats. My favorite was our fishing boat; it was "Old Trusty" to me, but her real name was "Barb" after my dad's mom. Both of his parents passed away when he was in his 20's.
"Barb" was my friend out on the lake. She'd take me to all the best fishing spots. My dad taught me, but I preferred to enjoy it alone. That's what fishing is all about to me-- solitude. Being at peace with nature; allowing the fish to find YOU. "Barb" is still alive & kicking, which is pretty impressive. I like to think I took really good care of her.
A lot like old "Barb".
Me fishing when I was younger.

"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it is because in addition to the fact that the sea changes and the light changes, it is because we all came from the sea.
I've been kayaking for almost ten years now. I started in my early twenties when I lived on the West coast in San Diego, CA. San Diego has so much to do in terms of water sports; well, other things as well. It's a dope city.
I've been researching rowboats for a boating trip and canoes keep coming up, so I'm guessing that they're the same thing? I've been canoeing, which I enjoyed, so I'll be comfortable on this trip. It's nice and relaxed!
I love my little catamaran that I take out onto the lake, but I always wanted me own trimaran. It would so fun to be the Captain of a ferry boat. Maybe that's just me, but there is something romantic about it.
