Dear Carol, Mike and Alison,
Do you remember the four wet kayakers who first-footed at your door in the early hours of one long ago New Year's Day?
Dag, Liz, Mark and I had paddled to Snake Island to see in the new year. We didn't linger there much after midnight. There is not a lot to do on Snake Island in the dark on Jan. 01. Paddling back to Protection, we saw lights at your cabin. I can't remember what time it was, but it must have been at least 1am, or later, when we stumbled up the beach and onto your deck. I'll always remember how you welcomed us. With glee. With grace. With a few of those lovely Mike glares. And one more g word that keeps cropping up –with generosity. As always in your house, wine flowed, food was shared, there was lots of laughter and smart, funny conversation.
It was a fabulous way to see in a new year.
You are a fabulous family.
Much love, Maria xxx
