We were motoring to the dinghy dock one day, when a man aboard a large trawler named Agape hailed us.

Moments later we hopped aboard and offered beer at ten in the morning. Laurence needed help cleaning barnacles on the bottom-side of his boat, installing pieces of his bow sprit, and driving inland to grab an eighty-pound vice a friend was gifting him.

We cooked dinner together, painted, and made a new friend.

Chance encounters can blossom into beautiful things.rd
