Most of us can't wait to get up in the morning and set off on another 'treasure hunt'. Here are a few things that have made my pulse quicken over the years: First photo - stumbling across an old paddle that had been 'rescued' by a very artistic 12-year old boy, who cleaned it up and added a lovely, wading shorebird, complete with reflection. Second photo - being invited in to look at a friend's decoy collection, then being allowed to pick one to take home. Third photo - studying and learning about native-made kayaks from the far north, and why or how the different shapes began. Last photo, coming home after a long day and adding a 'new find' to the shelves. Makes it all worth getting out of bed in the morning. Best part is the folks we meet and the good friendships we make, even beyond the pieces we collect.
