Our Neophyte Sailor

During the past year or so, there have been life's interruptions to our cruising plans. We've been fortunate because all of these interruptions have been enriching; the wedding of our youngest daughter followed shortly thereafter by the birth of our first grandchild to our oldest daughter. All have been causes for celebration. This post, we'll take some time to share photos of the newest neophyte sailor and dote, as grandparents are entitled. Archer arrived early afternoon of March 20, the first day of Spring, on a cool overcast day in San Francisco.

He's been the joy of the entire family, but the grandma's and great-grandma are over the moon for Archer. Here he is with his great-grandmother, Pat.

Of course there's also Grandma Cheryl and Grandma Kathie who never seem to get enough time with their favorite grandson.

The truth of the matter, his parents, aunts and uncles, all of us, think he's pretty damn cute!

Archer is pretty non-plussed by it all. While he has taken his first hike in the woods around Willits, his sailing adventures will be starting before you know it.

He is adorable, and I can only imagine the joy of a grand-child .. someday! Love the pic with his hat and the sailboat too!

Thanks for your comments, guys. We think he's pretty special, but we recognize we may be a bit biased.

He's a DOLL... isn't it amazing? Each generation seems to be more beautiful (and wiser, we hope!) xoxo
Enjoy every minute you have with him (and I know you are doing so!) Love you all... ~m.
