      Hi Robin. All is will on my side. What are you up to do these days? I ran hotels for years and got a little burnt out, so started the stand up paddle company. It’s definitely lots of fun.

    It Appears that all our family ever thinks about Dwayne , is SUP anymore . Last Sat. we visited the beautiful mountains of Bryson City , N.C. & rode on the , ” Great Smokey Mountain Railroad train ” . We passed the Nantahala River, meaning: (Rising Sun ) & saw : White water rafting , kayaking , speed boating & of course Stand up Paddle too at the Adventure Center layover. We even saw it on the news about SUP & fund raising in KnoxvillesTennessee River !!! & of course Jimmy Buffett s Grand Opening of his new Margaritaville , this week in Pigeon forge, TN.:-)” Good Friends ” ! ” Good People “! Robin S. 5 Stars ☆☆☆☆☆for Stand up Paddle . 🙂

    Hi Robin. How cool is that. I’ve actually white water rafted on the Nantahala River, back when I lived in Orlando. Really beautiful up there. I was just up in Wales this weekend and SUP’s are everywhere. Can’t wait to try and go white water rafting on an sup! Send my love to the family!

      Hi! Dwayne ! Good Morning ! I’ve Been thinking about you & sent a message a couple weeks ago , but don’t know why it did not send out . So Im trying again . Dollywood recently held their Annual ” Festival of Nations ” ( which they do every Spring ), and we had a group of Guests from ” Trinidad “! That did a show .They played music on these oil drums of different sizes ( we call it sticks on steel ) and the music was very Beautiful .I couldn’t help thinking about the culture of your Island ! And how beautiful it is ! They were quite talented on the drums & the sounds went well with the music .They were joking around saying Trinidad had only 2 seasons , Hot & Wet ! & only 2 Island’s , Trinidad and Tobago ! And What did they do there ? , Why of course , Party ! 🙂 We really enjoyed the show .They ended it with Dolly Partons song ” Good ole Rocky Top , Rocky Top Tennessee “! I know summer is a busy Season for us both on the business side of things . Sure hope this is finding you well & busy ! With Sup ! Oh ! And by the way , I told the kids hi ! For you ! & they smiled 🙂 they remembered ! & they said hi ! back ! ” Great friend’s ” Great People ” ! “Be Blessed ” ! Dwayne ! Robin & family ☆☆☆☆☆5 Stars !

    Hi Robin. They call it Steelpan. It was invented in Trinidad and is a big part of our culture. I started another new business this year, called Snorkeltobago (www.snorkeltobago.com). So I have been busy learning engines and boat maintenance. Never a dull moment. Lost an engine last Friday so I’m learning to take one apart now. All is well though and glad to hear that the family is awesome! Keep smiling.
