Blew Me Away!

My youngest grandson put up a video that blew me away on two levels. The first being that it was entirely in Spanish. He hadn't had it in school to my knowledge but I knew he was trying to teach it to himself. He was relating his adventure, seemingly in fluid Spanish. The second was the adventure itself. Although we live a stone's throw from the Great South Bay, to my knowledge he had never gotten into the water scene as so many of the younger people do in our neighborhood. Here he was, taking off in a rather dubious looking rowboat with a friend to explore some some distant islands! There wasn't another boat out to be seen and the islands are uninhabited.
In truth, I would have been apprehensive had I known what they were up to. An outboard motor problem or a change in the weather could have been dangerous. I don't know if anyone on shore even knew what these young men were planning had they been stranded. (A subject that will be discussed in length with him forthcoming.)
Since I don't speak the language, I sent a link to the video to a bilingual friend to see how good his narration was and they replied it was excellent.
