This is my son Gabe, oh so long ago. It was his first day of learning how to drive the skiff. He was a pretty happy and proud nine year old…presently he is 28. He did turn the throttle pretty hard and almost flipped me out of the boat while I was standing up taking this photo. The skiff lesson happened at Gull Cove while we were helping our friends Paul and Tammi work on their lodge that opened in 1996. My upcoming children’s book features many of my favorite images from all the years of shooting photos. Thanks for visiting!
