Was so happy when I was awarded a ribbon for best photography in show, it was a complete surprise. I also won 2 childrens choice awards. Festivals are more exhaustng then eco-tours. Lots of work, huge expense with printing and frames. I almost didn't participate this year. I'm glad that I did. I have three more commissions coming up, and then I will be back on the water. I wanted to start the season early this year, but the starter on my engine failed and is in the process of being repaired. We have had stronger winds than usual early this season too - so even if my boat was in the water, I wouldn't be able to offer many tours. We can't do charter boat tours when the winds are this strong. Looking forward to seeing everyone this summer - it's not too far off!
