We Remember
During our Sunday morning paddle yesterday, several of us (not all  pictured) gathered along the south break wall to remember Doug Winter, a friend, a teacher and a fellow paddler who died several months ago. We had held a memorial gathering before and had waited until now so those who don't paddle in winter could join us.
Leslie (r) had etched the memorial stone, and Greg agreed to place it on behalf of us all.
He chose a spot where storms are less likely to move it and where casual observers will not molest it.
That done, we went for a paddle, talked and felt a bit better about things.
What did Doug look like? His photo is always at the bottom of these pages.

Paddle safe...
