Rex's War Canoe

My dear friends. There were parties for me all over the Keys in the last weeks. It was a humbling experience, seeing how many friends I have and how wonderful they all are. From breakfasts to dinners (and all excuses in between to gather together and eat, drink and be merry) and for 7 days and nights in a row....I was amazed.

My Full Moon Kayak bunch, launched the war canoe at sunset on my last night in the Keys. We paddled out into Blackwater Sound to watch the sunset and sing in a new adventure for all of us.

I was delighted. How could anyone ask for a better going away present than to have all your friends together, sharing songs and memories, good food and wine and a fire out under the stars? It was a wonderful evening.

last sunset
the war canoe
with paddles up

evening cloud cover
through ragged holes
the last sunbeams
