Sailability...And On The Pier!!!

Last weekend our Daughter JoJo had the opportunity to participate in Sailability. Sailability is the peak organization for Sailors with disabilities...which facilitates sailing for everyone regardless of age or disability with emphasis on opportunities for people with disabilities. To my understanding Sailability is world-wide. We photographed this very, very special and momentous occassion for her... 'Sailing Pelicans'


The historic Clyde River Bridge...Clyde River is famous for some of the cleanest oysters around...


Waiting patiently for her turn...

All set...

Doggy also enjoying...

A little distraction here...a local Restaurant ~On The Pier~ superb food, stunning views up and down the River...mountains on one side, town on the other...

Also popular for Weddings...

Back to the action now...heading off...

Cruisin'

And for us...while JoJo enjoyed her afternoon we headed off for...fish'nchips...yummmm!!!
Thank you Sailability, And very special thanks also to the Carers
A Great Day!!!

The fish 'n' chips look sooooo yum. I have had quite a few yearnings for this particular dish of late!
