How lucky we were to be at the right place at the right time to snap this gem of a picture! The Gunners were gearing up for race practice at Kadena Marina. They were happy to let Derrick capture their team just before they headed away from the dock. Believe it or not, after 2 ½ years on Okinawa, our family still hasn’t seen a dragon boat race. But, after watching their practice maneuvers and teamwork skills, we will definitely seek out some racing events. It would be such fun to get caught up in the moment and celebratory action of it all.
