Email This Page to a FriendPreview: A Grandparent’s Pleasant Memories
May 1, 2012
I’m looking back over pictures taken last summer. The photos that catch my eye are the ones of our grandchildren and Steve Stone’s kids learning to sail little dinghies, first in a sheltered cove at the head of the harbor and then a day later off onto the wilds of Eggemoggin Reach and over to an island for lunch.
For a boat-minded grandparent there are few sights more thrilling than watching the clenched-teeth grimaces of little kids dissolve into broad smiles as sheets are trimmed and squared away and little boats gather way under the command of an eleven year old.
