2011 has been an amazing year. From the two visits to Canada this year, to paddling the cliffs of Los Angeles, my final days paddle with Gelo, the incredible Hawkesbury Canoe Classic and of course the release of my book. And not forgetting the interstate & international expansion of Team Fat Paddler, with a whole raft of awesome people coming onboard.
But it’s important to remember not everyone is as fortunate as we are. The poor, the injured, the homeless, and the plain old lonely will have a difficult day this Christmas. So always be thankful for what you have and the joy you get to experience every day in your lives – take time to look at magnificent orange clouds at sunset, smile at a passing child on the street, embrace the wonderful world that is around us all.
May you all have a wonderful time this season, enjoy the time with loved ones and maybe, just maybe, Santa will drop a new kayak down the chimney!! Cheers, and many happy returns, FP
