A MILESTONE DAY YESTERDAY FOR MISTER R. Note the smile on his face as he puts his shoes\back on. That smile is because he's thrilled with himself. He walked down to the dock with me and right off the edge. It was his first plunge after thirteen years of living on the water and his first plunge into a lake since he was a kid at camp. Resurfacing, he couldn't believe the water was so clean and warm and lovely and he hadn't done it sooner. He felt just like I had felt last year.
If I hadn't had my boating incident, he wouldn't have come with me, but he thought I couldn't be trusted to go swimming alone even though the boat remains crumpled in the garage. He did spot an electric motor on one of the boats in dock and I swam over to take a closer look. Our raft wouldn't do. We need a boat designed for such. With Honey's new enthusiasm, boating may still be an option?
