The Beginning

This very sentence, taken from The Old Man and the Sea, is one that we've often quoted when referring to the relationship between Steve and the person who first introduced him to the ocean, his grandfather.

Jill and Steve

Steve and I met 30 years ago and we’ve been fishing together for almost as long, having spent much of that time in Montauk. This was my introduction to fishing and I fell in love with it immediately.

Steve's Grandfather

On July 15, 2006, Bob passed away. There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t thank him for having introduced us to the love of our lives. He is now one with the ocean and I know he watches over us when we’re out there.

Tying the knot

On January 26, 2013, after years of swearing that we would never, ever, ever do it, Steve and I finally got hitched. We were married on the beautiful Playa de Bavaro in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in front of our family and friends.
