Megan Surprises Us Again

Remember Megan? I met her on Blake Island. See posting 2 June 2013

She has sent me an email and photo showing their latest accomplishment. Gary, her husband used their lift to put Meagan into the dinghy for the first time. Away they went , zooming over the waters with Megan laughing all the way.. It was the first  time for a dinghy ride since Megan's accident which left her a high paraplegic. That was 6 years ago and they both continue to amaze us with their enthusiasm to be boating in Puget Sound.

Megan says, " Its great to be alive". What a spirit. Thanks for sharing Megan. The June issue of Northwest Yachting has an article of another couple cruising whose wife is a Quadraplegic from a motor vehicle accident. It is wonderful to see people facing their challenges with such enthusiasm.
