Sometimes two really is better than one.
Two families blended means kids can entertain themselves for hours and days on end,
especially if you let them make their own "fishing rods" from recently cut bamboo, twine, strange metal antennae and randomly found curtain rods. (oh my)
Surfboards from 1965 are timeless,
and in constant motion, better when used by two.
Two rods, twice the fish,
and rolling out onto the dock in pajamas before breakfast, well, it's certainly a luxury.
But none of it would happen without the generosity of friends, and the ability to slip into step beside one another, working together to make life just a little bit (or maybe alot) more interesting.
