RowofLife Boat

Yes, I do suck at Blogging. I try to be good, but...... My new solution is for you to subscribe and then you will know when a new one is up.

I wanted to let everyone know that we did make it home from Florida with the boat. We stopped in Naples, FL and saw Angela's Brother and Sister in Law, Jack and Hillary. Then to Tampa, FL to see my best friend, Carmen and her husband, Kevin. We went to Inverness to have work done on the boat by Angela's Dad and Mom, Ron and Betty. We were excited that Angela's Daughter, son in law, and granddaughters, Jenn, Ronnie, Amanda, Angel, and Chyenne, were able and come help with the boat as well. The grandkids cleaned the boat and her Dad patched holes that happened during shipping.

We stopped Alabama and saw Angela's Aunt Betty, Uncle Jeff and Brother, Ronnie. There was an event at the Chesapeake Boathouse in Oklahoma City, but the weather was so bad we could not put the boat in the water. We met Angela's friend, Christy, for Breakfast in Albuquerque, NM. Then we headed home.

The RowofLife boat is currently docked at the Dunster Reserve in Long Beach. Dunster is next to the Pete Archer Rowing Center (5750 Boathouse Ln, Long Beach, CA) where Angela teaches the California Adaptive Rowing Program. The boat will be at Dunster until the early morning hours of April 20th, when we will be taking it to the Huntington Beach Surf Museum for Surfing Sunday. It is going to the Newport Film Festival on the 27th of April.

Angela has made several appearances at community meetings to give her presentation. She will be available to make appearances until the end of May. After that she will be in Philly to train with her Paralympics’ rowing partner, Scott Brown. She leaves for the Paralympics on Sept 1st.

I wanted to see Angela on Ellen, Oprah, etc. but my efforts have not really gotten a response. I want to get everyone to write all the shows and see if we can get noticed with volumes of mail, instead on my one request. So anyone that wants to help me out, send letters. Ellen even had one of the English rowers from the race on her show, but has not our Local girl on. Thanks for your help in advance.
