Point Dume Paddle Out for Mike Moses

Dateline: Saturday morning, December 17, 2016, at Point Dume Tower #1, friends and family of LACoFD Ocean Lifeguard, Mike Moses, R.I.P., gathered to honor his legacy of lifesaving, friendship and service.  Here are the photos and videos...

Video #1: Mike Moses Paddle Out

Below, in a remarkable display of respect, this Pelican and the flock of seagulls remained on the berm while the paddle out ceremony took place and just as soon as the paddlers finished up with the customary cheering and splashing of water, this pelican and the rest of his squadron along with these seagulls hit the skies and the pelicans started dive bombing for bait fish just off of Pt. Dume...  I'm convinced that this Pelican knew and loved Mike Moses.

Rest in peace, Mike.  Life is so very precious and one of the many gifts you gave to all of us is the opportunity to appreciate life that much more, especially family, friendship and service to others.
