I am looking forward to this Saturday for two reasons.
One: The Clearwater Community Sailing Center’s Open Water swim race.
This race is super low-key, small, and most of all fun. It is a summer series to raise money for kids to go to sailing camp, and I enjoy supporting the cause while trying to kick some bootay. I have a dream of sailing around the world. First, I should probably attend their kiddie camp to learn the basics. I’ve only sailed as a co-captain before barking commands like, “Pass me a another beer.”
At last year’s race, my husband and I were neck and neck until he made the wrong turn. I yelled at him to get back on course, and I was certain I had the win…. only to run out of the water, cross the finish line, and see him sipping on a glass of water. I’ve been hitting the pool pretty good this year, so Dave has made himself look real busy this weekend for fear of losing the title.
Two: Hands Across the Sand.
a movement made of people of all walks of life and political affiliations and the borders of the world. This movement is not about politics – it is about the protection of our coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife and fisheries. The accidents that continue to happen in offshore drilling are a threat to all of the above. Expanding offshore drilling is not the answer; embracing Clean Energy is.
So while the BP oil spill is now a distant memory, let’s not let the momentum fade for opposing off shore drilling and embracing Clean Energy.
Will you join hands with fellow citizens of this Earth and make a stand in what you believe in?
