It’s not just a solitary thing – it’s become a family thing, too. It’s about exercising and passing something on from father to son, and from mother to daughter.”

“The sea lives in every one of us.”
Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone.
The waves of the sea help me get back to me.
In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.
Every time I stand before a beautiful beach, its waves seem to whisper to me: If you choose the simple things and find joy in nature’s simple treasures, life and living need not be so hard.
“One of the great things about travel is that you find out how many good, kind people there are.”

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
“Sometimes, the simple things are more fun and meaningful than all the banquets in the world …”
