The last and final day of my Healing Towers adventure. What a trip. There were so many firsts and so many memories made. I woke up so excited to be on my journey back to my family. And of course to show everyone the hundreds of pictures taken. Ed and Cleave had an early flight out, but mine […]
We woke up on a little later this last day. Since we were docked and in no hurry, the usual anchor motor alarm was on snooze. Ed, Cleave and I all got up at the same time and headed up the steep and intricate stair path leading from the dock to Healing Towers. We got slapped […]
I woke up before Garry cranked the anchor on this day. I didn’t really sleep much due to the halibut we hadn’t found from the day before. I felt robbed. It sucks when you do everything right and things still just don’t work out, but that’s how things go sometimes. Garry wanted to look for […]

Day 3 of the Healing Towers trip began with the same terrifying motor wake-up. I was slightly more prepared this time.

The noise almost knocked me on the floor. I hadn’t jumped outta bed that bad since Iraq. You see, my bunk was directly under the anchor motor. You wanna talk about a loud noise… It was 5 something and Garry had already been setting things up for the morning. Did I mention he’s a machine?
It was a vision Garry Morfit had been obsessing over for some time. The Vietnam vet had served his country with honor, but he wanted to keep giving. After learning of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing in 2006, he knew it was the gateway organization he would use for his vision. He started planning how […]
