This chapter is titled ‘Family’ but it could have easily been titled ‘Daniel’ as it really is about him. It is also as much about his deep desire to protect his family from any type of hardships. Be it mental, physical or financial. After the death of his father at a young age he had to become the ‘Man.’
Jeff is very close to Kyle. Daniel, however, is his big brother who he truly admires and looks up to…always has. We become aware how important family is as we watch Jeff spend time with Daniel, Marcia, his niece, and nephew.
Daniel is a longshoreman. You may ask, Does everyone work in maritime trades here?
Well, Savannah and Charleston are seaports with two of the largest container terminals in the United States. They deploy over 500 acres to handle some of the largest cargo and shipments in the country. Yes, a large percentage of Savannahians and Charlestonians work in maritime.
As Daniel reminiscences about his Granddad and his job as a laborer that help build Liberty Ship’s between 1941 and 1945, we get a sense of maritime history with this family.
Savannah and Charleston have beautiful beaches. Daniel and Jeff are spending bonding time on Savannah Beach and gambling in international waters. Is this behavior consistent with a Genesis commander?
So Genesis has used one of their conglomerates to buy out the tugboat company on Savannah. Why?
We sense there is growing concern about Long Term Care cost for their aging mother. When Jeff mentioned he has a plan to solve his mother financial woes….Daniel became upset.
Is Jeff contemplating something nefarious? What is your opinion?
Jeff plan was to ‘Dive the Dolphin' What the heck is going on here?
