A Boating Life

Today is Helen's 16th birthday. As I dropped her off for crew practice at 5 a.m. I thought about her life in boats. It isn't surprising that she loves crew so much.

Here she is as a newborn in the boat cradle Nelson made her and under the matching blanket I knit for her.
Here she is about 8 weeks old about to go on her first canoe trip. We were making sure she wouldn't fall out of the life jacket.


 Off to get lobsters one morning in Maine.


Catching her first fish with her uncle and cousin.

Overnight canoe trip on the Connecticut River.

Piloting the canalboat in England.


Happy Birthday Helen!
