Please forgive me as I gloat a little on one of my grandsons. This is Nic, who is not yet six years old, out with his father Matt catching a wave in Thailand.
Pretty impressive if you ask his grandpa.

I think I was just learning to swim at his age, maybe enough balance to float in a tube?
His Dad loves the ocean and that's what you get when you spend time with your kids.
Love Fred

That is great, Fred! I've been to Hawaii a couple of times and have always gotten such a big kick out of watching the surfers. It looks like so much fun, but I know if I ever tried it, if I didn't kill myself, I would at least injure myself pretty good. So it's fun to live vicariously through others in this area. I'm proud of your grandson, too. I pray he'll always live life to the fullest with that kind of passion and bravery. Way to go, Nic!

Hi Fred:)

Something to remember and cherish. Your grandson is very brave considering his age.

This brought to my memory an incident which happened when I was small. I used to go to Chennai Marina Beach with my friends and play. As I was happily playing in the water, I found my self pulled by a receding wave into a deep ditch. I couldn't breathe and I was suffocating. My friends saw this and they were laughing thinking I was joking. I was struggling for life. Fortunately for me, a giant wave came and pushed me out of the ditch and I was saved. And here I am today commenting on your blog. God saved me.

Best wishes:)
Joseph
