We shipped a boat to Pedro down in Argentina. It took some doing but we now have good friends in Buenes Aires eager for us to visit..
Monday we had our first surf class of the season over at Folly Beach S.C in small but very clean conditions. Half way through the lesson I realized my boat was sinking. After close inspection I noticed a bullet hole that passed through the hull and out just above the forward rail. It explained the automatic gun fire I heard three nights before and got me wondering how many more boats lay slain back at the ranch.
Our first camping trip went down to Beach Hammock Tuesday and Wednesday with ten students from Lawrence Uni in WI. It was a great trip which means good weather, good food and good company. The interior of B H was a little on the trashy side...in fact we came across several cracker camps during the trip. You can always spot them...bear cans in the fire along with shot gun shells, a destroyed tent from Bass Pro and a chair or two usually with bullet holes in them. A Hammock clean up needs to be organized soon.

It's great to be able to offer our clients the latest and best gear on the market today. The new P&H Scorpio, the replacement for the plastic Capella, will be here soon.

No, nothing like that happened. But we did get some rest and 'rest is best' said the fat guru. A lot of our attention turns to the house and garden which gets somewhat neglected during the 'season'. A trip to England, a stroll along Brighton prom and cup of tea behind the rain lashed windows of the Greasy Spoon cafe was as 'foreign' as we got.
But, March is the start and we are now up and running, firing on all(most)pistons and excited about the paddling ahead. New boats from P&H will be here very soon and the Mega boat inventory is looking decidedly hot. We are implementing extended 'shop' hours...Thursday 6-8pm every week will be open house. Some evenings there will be lectures, slide shows and special presentations, but always tea and biscuits. Come over and say 'hi', maybe buy a new kayak... use the side gate and be nice to Joey.
Savannah's Paddy's day parade is next Friday (March14) and symbolically marks the end of winter. I'd rather be in Santa Cruz and Kristin in Egypt. So we'll settle for Little Tybee then.
We have a lot of plans for this season that will slowly be revealed, if not cancelled...so check back.
And remember ...it's better with Metta.
