Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah's Ark....

One: Don't miss the boat. 
(cruise ship headed to Alaska - passing Whidbey Island)

  Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat.

  Three: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark. 

(storm clouds in the Pacific Northwest)

Four: Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.

Five: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done. 

(posing for the blog at Marshall Store on Tomales Bay, hard work!)

Six: Build your future on higher ground. 
(Pt. Reyes Lighthouse, fog trying to lift)

Seven: For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

(starfish pair in Puget Sound)

Eight: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs. 
(periwinkles in a Half Moon Bay tidepool)
Nine: When you're stressed, float a while.
(San Francisco Bay taken from Point Bonita Lighthouse)
Ten: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals. 

Some great advice in 10 easy steps... have a great weekend everyone!
