Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

Another Great Kayak Trip...

I was able to get some great pictures on this trip with my wife's waterproof camera. I bought her a nice digital camera for her pilgrimage to Europe, and at the time I thought it would be a good idea to get a waterproof camera. Well, it might of been a subconscious decision on my part that had something to do with future kayaking.... Anyway, what a great camera for the trip.
Sean and I were dropped off at Turtle Bay (Sacramento River) by my wife and cruised down the river for about 3 1/2 hours. We hit a few rapids from time to time, and drifted through calm waters as well. We brought our fishing poles, that made the calm water drifting a lot of fun.
We didn't catch any fish, a few bites, but did see some salmon up close and personal.

Am I fishing or taking a nap on my kayak?????
Sean, What a great Kayaker...He makes it look easy...
Sean thinking that he found a great fishing spot in the calm waters..
The water begins to pick up speed and we quickly fasten down our fishing poles to get ready for the next set of white water...
Another area of calmness.
What a life, out on the river fishing, dad and son,
I sure can count my blessings...

The water begins to pick back up and the fun begins once again.

Life can be so short, I thank God for the blessings that he has given me and try to not waste what we has bestowed to me, even if it is just "for now." The vocation of being Husband and Father has to be the greatest calling in the world. To love and to be loved. What else can surpass God's love manifested through us and onto us...
