Another report of a book well worth reading.
Yes, another Webb Chiles book ' Return to the sea'..
Another circumnavigation, more adventures, a sail from Boston to Purtugal, Gibraltar, Dakar ,Africa, to Brazil, Capetown and on to Australia.
As always, Webb Chiles never disappoints me when I'm sailing along with him.
Another book I can't put down when the presents seems lost to me and another adventure at sea begins.
I've had my nose into two good books that I want to tell you about:
The first book is
'Morning light' by Margaret Griffiths.
It's a story about a man in his mid 60ties who is fullfilling his dream to sail across the Atlantic in a small wooden sail boat .
He continues through the Panama Canal and sails home to Vancouver Island. Soon after he gets home he learns of the death of his son while climbing Mt Everest. To come to grips with this tragedy he walks to basecamp, to the spot where his son's ashes were scattered onto the mountain.
The book is written by his wife in such a wonderful way that it brought tears to my eyes . It touched my heart.
The second book is ' The cure for anything is salt water' by Mary South..
A young woman leaves the corporate world behind and buys a 40 foot trawler. She has never owned or driven such a big boat before and goes on a cruise from Florida to Long Islan, NY.
This is a book that will inspire many, including myself. It's a wonderfully refreshing read.
