Meet Pat

Posted by on Aug 14, 2012 in Lifestyle | No Comments

Pat is 94 years young. Pat lives a few miles from Fort Flagler on Marrowstone Island and, always a swimmer, she’s probably more at home in the water than on land. Pat is the fabulous grandmother of my friend Kelsey, and they were both gracious enough to allow me to hang out with them for the day, show me around the island and of course let me torture them a bit with my camera. I even got a grilled-cheese sandwich out of the deal.

There are now almost two-million Americans age 90 or older. For me, the 90 Somethings project is about getting to meet amazing people, hear incredible life stories and be small part of documenting those lives/stories. If you have an awesome 90-something in your life I’d love a chance to chat with them!
