The Pirate Ship

The dinghy racks have become Z's favorite play spot. He climbs inside and talks out adventures of being on a pirate ship, going to exotic islands, traveling with wild animals, or just taking in the sights of the marina on a quiet summer afternoon.

The Beggers

Everyday around 6:30pm we have some visitors. The local ducks. Specifically a group of four babies (who have now grown up a bit) and a mama. Here's how it works, either they come to the transom and call for Zach, or Zach heads out and calls them -- and they ACTUALLY come when he calls!
Then the O's come out. I feel good knowing I am buying organic, whole grain O's... for the ducks. (oy) And the other day when they did not show up Zach requested urgently that we head out in the dinghy to look for them. Sure enough, they were down at the end of the creek with about 12 of their closest friend. Zach unleashed the bag of O's and it was a duck party!

Best Friends

Zach and Miss T have known each other for 2 of their 3 years of life. They are like brother and sister in the worst and best ways. Thomasa calls Zach "my boyfriend Zach" or "Captain" (he talked her into that one). They talk on the phone all the time and see each other many times each week. They play and talk and explore together in such a special way. Here are some pics of their summer fun in 2007.

Assateague Island (August 12, 2007)

After watching the movie The Black Stallion (minus the scary ship wreck scene) Zach was in heaven seeing horses on the beach just like the boy in the movie!
