Moments to remember forever

093a8250-copy

As I walked along my local beach, I saw a young father playing with his two small children. They were making the most spectacular sandcastle—an enormous, elaborate concoction, complete with moat, dribbled sand battlements, driftwood defences and seashell-crusted turrets. The little boy and girl were running back and forth between the castle and the water’s edge, squealing with excitement, cupped hands dripping as they tried to ferry enough of the sea in their tiny palms to fill their moat. They were in another world entirely, just the three of them.

It occurred to me that I had just seen a memory in the making. I suspect that those small children will never forget that castle, or those wondrous moments on the beach with their father. It was one of those childhood moments that have the power to last forever.

There are always precious moments to be enjoyed and memories to make, whether it’s a summer holiday, a day trip, or just a few hours in the afternoon. We hope these following moments from 2016 inspire you to create many more unforgettable moments in 2017. Take inspiration from Emily Dickinson and make the most of each moment,

“Forever is composed of nows.” – Emily Dickinson

    So many gorgeous pics. My favorite moment was riding solo to Orford for the first time. I had a complete hip replacement this year another in 2017. And the ride was amazing. Wish i had have taken pics. But i was too busy enjoying every second. Thanks for making a perfect road for motorcycles.
