Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailing.
Doubtful that you will ever find me in a sailboat but for some reason, I have a strange fascination with the sea. I have written of my love for a book about sailing called "Sailing Alone Around The World" by Joshua Slocum. You would never guess...Les from Prairie Horizons sent me a copy of her husband's book... it is an annotated copy of this book!
THANK YOU to Les and Rod! (And also thanks to Nan who I believe told Les of my love for this book!)
There, I think I have a link on Amazon for you, but please feel free to buy it from any bookstore
or book shop in England! The wonderful thing, Rod Scher (husband of Les, if you are still following me!) has great knowledge of the history of sailing and therefore gives you lots of facts alongside the story itself. Not bragging, but I surprised myself at how much I already knew of this nautical and historical information! I learned a lot but still, I didn't think I would know ANYTHING! This is just from my reading, but then, I am getting on in years, so doggone it, I should be remembering something!
This is just a quick post since, as I told you, not much time for a while, hope to be back with you soon...until then, keep an even keel!
