Back out on the SUP

Finally went out for a paddle. It was great to get the board under feet. Spending three weeks nursing the sprained ankle as my inner advisor struggling to keep me sane watching surf break , friends catching waves, fighting urge to get out and paddle regardless of being hurt. Today was the Day ! ... a for a mid-day paddle with Jesse in a windless, warm 70*f Carolina fall day.... Not a soul on the water but few birds and otter in the marsh.. Ankle felt good will wear a brace in the surf .. Cleansed the soul after a long three weeks ..


Jesse checking out the local..

No Surf , no problem, go fish..

When not on top of the SUP surfing we head out to fish. Jamie and I headed offshore 10 miles to the B-45 wreck to bottom fish for Sheepshead, blackdrum and grouper. Lots of life all over the wreck. baitfish on top , little tunny hitting the bait , seeing huge splashes in the middle of the bait pods. The bottom fish hitting the baits as we caught several species of fish.. The weather was perfect and water like glass. Fishing with Jamie is a learning experience. He knows fishing and shares his passion. Thanks Jamie..

Happy Thanksgiving

Stand up, on this Thanksgiving Day, stand upon your feet. Believe in man. Soberly and with clear eyes, believe in your own time and place. There is not, and there never has been a better time, or a better place to live in.”
.........Be safe and enjoy......
My piece of heaven..
Jesse and I two years ago at Thanksgiving...

Tuesday, November 24, 2009 hit me while dreaming.....

...The wisdom encounter that slammed my thoughts, waking me up...
When an illness or injury knocks you on your ass, you should stay down and relax for a while before trying to get back up.
Now, my inner advisor is dying to heal me.
I needed to be reminded of why it is important to look after my health. I need to be inspired from time to time, with fresh perspectives about health. I need to be motivated to regain my health and to overcome the health condition.
Now I'm making my own recovery the first priority in my life !

Priority one's goal...

Mahalo to all who have touched my life ......good night, : )
