Mid Ocean Rescue--a note from home

09 October 2012 | Avila Pier
Admiral Lori
I was late in getting into the dingy to go pick up the kids from the pier at Avila. The bus had dropped them off and I had less then 5 minutes to get there, or so I thought. I jumped into the dingy, threw off the lines (have to have bow and stern lines in case one comes off in high winds--that is another story), and got the engine fired up. I said Hi to the otter family that lives next to a buoy near us as I passed them. Then I put the hammer down and flew to the pier. When I got there, no one was waiting so I just shut off the engine and drifted along side the pier. Up above me there was a little girl saying good bye. I did not know why she was saying that until I saw a little pink shoe floating by the pilings. I started the engine hoping that the shoe would not drift too close to the pier so I could get it. There is a lot of surge around there so I had to be careful. I put the boat in forward and then neutral and got the shoe. Quickly, I reversed out so I would not have to explain why I tried to rip off the dingy toe rail once again. The dad came down and got the shoe and said thanks. The little girl waved and gave me a loud thank you while mom took pictures of the crazy lady in the ski boat who was just floating by the dock. I felt like a cruiser again, if only for a few minutes. It was a good feeling.
