"...Spectacular and breathtaking..."
Dear Willy, Betsy, and Logan…. as I’m preparing for my 22 darling 1st graders to start this school year, I can’t help but look back at my mom’s and my “adventure” a few weeks ago, in Ely….specifically at Custom Cabins.
The feeling of being in the water, powered only by our paddles, was eye opening. The next day with Logan, the eagles, and boat ride were spectacular and breathtaking. Before that, I had only seen one eagle, and it flew by so fast that someone later had to tell me that that was what it was.
Betsy—Taking us to Charles Kuralt’s cabin was surreal. We never expected this treat and the fact that it was prearranged specifically for us didn’t go unnoticed. My mom and I have pictures and memories that instantly bring a smile to our faces.
Willy—Having this picture that you took was an unexpected surprise. Thank you so much for taking the time to catch this moment in our lives and share it with my mom. I think we surprised ourselves too.
Best of all, I saw a look on my mom’s face that I hadn’t seen in a long time. My mom is already talking about “the next time we go.” Thank you Willy, Betsy, and Logan for making this a highlight in our lives that we will never forget.
