dreams of the sea

This is a shot of my sister and I looking out at an evening the ocean from a dock in Cuba – telling stories to each other about our dad – who used to sail these very seas long ago.

Our dad gave up the navy when my sister and I were born, but when we were children whenever he took us to the beach he would look out at the ocean and tell us that one day he would make just one more trip. He always dreamed of that trip, but never made it, so on days like this in the photo my sister and I dream for him.
