Summer, a small boat and the wind in my face. I am driving the boat under the close supervision of the owner, and I am feeling as proud as a 10-year-old can be. A swimsuit, flip-flops, an open Hawaiian shirt and a baseball hat, turned backwards so the sea wind doesn’t claim it as his own. My hands are gripping the steer, holding it with way more strength that they need but I have to be sure that it will not slip, I am trusted with steering the boat, I cannot make any mistakes. My eyes in the horizon, steady, bright colours all around me in shades of blue and green. I can see the shore but other than that nothing is around us. I breathe deep and feel the salt in the air, short splashes of sea on my face and the sun warming my skin. Below us, the gentle roar of the old motor and the splashing of the waves on the boat - every now and then a seagull shouts.
