Grants, Blue Herons, guide training and one wet camera

The Blue Herons soared effortlessly above our heads.  I've never seen so many at one time.  Erin, Izaac, Brian, and I were training on the 'light course' and we found the most amazing bird island sanctuary.  It felt amazing meeting the new guides and learning about their interests and goals and finding over 15 nests filled with beautiful birds was just icing on the cake.  (oh, and a Bald Eagle also flew over head)

NDC (Neighborhood Development Center) called me 2 days ago.  We discussed the business plan and the beautiful people at this organization said they were so excited about what we are doing, they would push the grant through before the regular hearings, deadlined for the first of the month and scheduled for the 15th.  They said 2 weeks would be a reasonable time to get it processed.  This means no more credit card debt!  Now I owe uncle Sam...

Ok, I don't want to admit this, but I fell in today...  I told myself, and my guides I wouldn't and packed accordingly, which was too much tempting fate could handle.  Lesson learned.  Dress to get wet.  Except if you're a girl.  (so far, not one girl has fell)

Today, I gave 3 tours, totalling 6 hours of paddle boarding.  Thank God for Psycho Suzies and their flaming volcanoe drinks!  This is going to be the best summer ever.
