Here in the USA it is Father's Day today. Wishing a Happy Father's Day to your father, and to you if you are a father. I loved seeing this dad out sailing in January with his boy in a boat he had made. He's just peeking at me from under the boom. I thought it fitting to post it as this is our first Father's Day without my husband, so we are getting down to the water near where we committed his ashes to the Sound last summer and having some fun with friends in the glorious sunshine. He always loved living by a large body of water, loved sailing, made sails in a sail loft for a time, often played his saxophone to the bay and the setting sun, and spent a lot of time with us messing about in boats. A great dad, greatly missed. Also thinking of my dad, brother, father-in-law, uncles, and dear friends, all great dad's and I'm so glad to have had their wonderful influence and love in my life.
