You Don't Raise Heroes

Our second eldest son and his two boys love to go crabbing at an estuary about 100kms south of here, they pack up an inflatable dinghy and the camping and crabbing gear and slowly walk through knee high water for hours looking for and catching crabs. The boys have been taught to walk behind their Dad and when it gets cold they stop for dinner and change into warm clothing, my son then tows the dinghy behind him with them warm and snug inside until they have their catch.
They have wanted us to go for some time and we finally had the chance; rather than walk on the muddy bottom, I got into the dinghy and they pulled me along so I could get this great photo. Later the little ones snuggled up with me and we sang songs and told stories until they slept. It was just on sunset when I took this photo; my husband, one of his sons and his sons, the three generations tall and strong against the setting sun.
Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, best wishes.
