"This little 'Instamatic' photograph of our three daughters on the beach at Squirrel Island, Maine, was one that I knew that I would hook someday. When Mason-Dixon Chapter, ATHA, sponsored a class taught by Marjorie Judson, from Prince Edward Island, on hooking surf and ocean, that was the perfect opportunity to begin my hooking.
The amazing thing to me is that in the comments of the judges, the "wind" or "sea breeze" was mentioned and that was accomplished merely by the daughter’s (closest to the surf) blowing hair.
The title was inspired by a Sunday school song taken from a poem written by a boy who had recently visited a School for the Blind: 'All these things you gave to me, when you made my eyes to see. Thank you, God.'"
