Looking Back with Gratitude
I was looking through my dad's old slides and came across this image of my grandfather and me. I guess the image was taken one of the times my dad, grandfather and I went out fishing. My grandfather is long since gone but he instilled in me the love of the ocean, waves and the beach.
Though he never surfed (standing on board), he taught me to body surf and a very early age. I attribute my desire to surf at an early age to him and his body surfing lessons. He talked frequently of fishing, marine weather, hurricanes and the early days of Long Beach NY. He love to talk about being a kid and helping with building the board walk and how they used of elephants to the wood needed for the project.
