From Sadness to Gladness

A few days ago I received an e-mail from a good friend. Her brother, who was also a friend of mine passed away earlier that morning. As the tears continued to flow I went through the regular morning rituals. Then, I rowed myself to town to get some exercise while savoring the memories of Mike. It was Mike, who put me on the biggest boogie board ride of my life. Surely, it only seemed logical that after he encouraged me to 'jump, on the count of 3' that he would follow me into the swollen… Continue

Party's Over

Now that my round the world plan is in a holding pattern, it is time to continue writing a book started many moons ago. With holding the title is essential. Of all the things I could be paranoid about, the concept of the book is too precious to risk it be taken by someone with more book writing savvy than I. Like the guy who wrote Cold Mountain the plan is to write a best seller. It may be my first book. That, indeed, may be the best reason to make it a good one.

Coincidence or Psychic

A few days ago I posted a blog about my new lifestyle as an unwed mate. Having no legal ties, I can't rightfully call myself a housewife. The role I have chosen brings me happiness as I relish the time enjoying the day's parade of wonders with someone who I am intimate with. The coincidence is that just a few minutes earlier I was logging on to a new website whereby they ask folks to describe their favorite anchorages. The concept intrigued me, though navigating the password situation has…

What happened to the solo sailor???

Blogging has taken a back seat to living the life of an unwedded housewife. It is a strange new world. Interestingly, I recently met a fellow sailor who made this comment.



     I was a housewife my entire adult life. I wish I had taken on a career, some type of job. Now, at my age (about 55         +/-) I can't find work." The counselor in me questioned her choice of the word can't. Softly I whispered, it is never too late to make a change, learn a new skill, there are jobs…

DOLPHN 40 AMP BATTERY CHARGER

Hello all.The Dolphin 40amp battery charger in my 2011 43 is charging well, EXCEPT the cooling fan is cycling on and off every 20 seconds or so. Volts and amps are correct  although there is red light top and centre flashing red, does not look happy.It seems as if the thermostat controlling the fan is not functioning correctly as the unit is not even warm.I cannot locate the Beneteau supplied manual, any clues as to the fault.Regards,Bilgolabands (Liberte)See More
