Christmas Comes Early for Margaret

Christmas Comes Early for Margaret

Margaret and Patty are frequent passengers and always a blast to be with. Margaret’s family surprised her with an early Christmas present.   It was a trip with Capt. Brian. Another surprise was finding a seahorse. Margaret gasped and stopped talking, then took two steps back in disbelief when she saw a seahorse. We also found many starfish. Last week the winds were intense and brought in many new gifts from the sea. Patty found a piece of a junonia, two babies ears, a lot of sea urchins and many other ocean treats. It was a fun filled afternoon with two fun energetic beachcombers. Merry Christmas Margaret!

    Thank you Capt Brian it was a very special surprise to go out with you. As you know I'm a talker and to find myself speechless over the seahorse was spectacular.
