The Sailing Saint Bernard

Like many of the creative, adventurous ideas that Jackson (Kevin) comes up with, my immediate mental reaction is, “that’s crazy.”

But I don’t voice my initial thoughts usually, because I know better. That’s just my more cautious self reacting. Plus, there’s plenty of people out there to burst your bubble and I don’t want to join that population. Thankfully, I usually catch the thought before it comes out and think twice about my word choices.

Today, his idea was to take Skyler sailing. This is a one man boat, mind you. Two at most, if the second passenger is a smaller person. The first photo shows her skepticism. But then he tells her to get in and “lets go for a ride!” She willingly hopped in. This dog doesn’t want to miss a beat. The water was pretty calm, as was the dog in the boat. She rode just as peacefully as the quiet breeze.

When they came back to shore, Kevin took me out on the water with him, meanwhile, Skyler raced to the end of the dock as we left her behind, and she barked at us until we came back. “Don’t leave me here!”

Below, I just threw in the picture Kevin took of the Gardenia. They are in full bloom up here right now and smell more fragrant than any other flower I’ve encountered.
