sailing with pappy



A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see. {amanda blake soule}

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

  1. My son (now 10) loves to sail - this year he & his partner we're on their own for the first time (he's always had an adult with him before this summer) - it was so amazing - they grow up so fast - treasure each moment -

    Such a beautiful photo - how fun for your little guy - he will treasure this as he grows older :-) Happy weekending and thanks for sharing your moment.

    Thanks for sharing that about your son + his joy in sailing! Reading that gives me chills because it reminds me of my own sailing as a child + of feeling that same joy +freedom.

    Next year there are mini sunfish camps for 7 year olds...the real deal like your son does is at 8. I could not be more excited for the Monks! These are very lucky littles!
