Father’s Day 2016

Basically, Trevor sent me away off the boat while he and the mechanic installed the new generator in San Diego….I did not protest!  So I headed off to North Carolina to visit my dad.  It just so happened that I arrived on Father’s Day.  My trip was not planned in advance and with only 2 days of notice, my sister also booked a flight from Colorado so we both could be in NC for Father’s Day as a surprise to our dad…and surprised he was!

My step mom, Barbara, and her family owns a beautiful and large cabin in the little city of Montreat where the family comes together once a year in June.  We sat on the porch and chatted while keeping an eye on the little ones, it was truly a Southern dream gone reality!  I was lucky to be visiting during this time so that I could connect with all of them.

Dad and I hung out and took care of doctors appointments, little chores, and even some time to watch a movie (Alice in Wonderland, the new one).  Elissa (step sister) and her dog Newman accompanied us many evenings and I enjoyed having the 4-footed friend at my side most of the day.

This trip was truly a treat and I only wished we could of had more time.  It is hard to leave especially when I don’t know when the next time I will see them again.  I Love you dad!
