I am a grandmother paddling alone over 2,500 miles from Maine to Guatemala. Along the way I will be:
- telling the story of the children who live in the Guatemala City garbage dump community
- honoring their entrepreneurial mothers
- talking about the success of the Safe Passage model school and
- raising funds for additional grades for the school.

Paddle Day 4: Fog, Fog, Fish and Furious

What does Deb see?
Dense fog for the entire paddle.  More confused seas.  Getting my navigational legs back under me.  And then a little excitement at the end of the paddle.
