This is the story of a guy who always loved the ocean. I grew up beside it in Maine, and I think my blood is part salt water! I spent many hours as a boy sitting on the rocks in Cape Elizabeth, dreaming of sailing ships and distant shores. I dreamed of adventures on the high seas, traveling to foreign lands filled with ancient ruins and treasures to discover. As I grew older I became wrapped up in never ending circle of accumulating more and more “Stuff” that most people think will bring them happiness.
I find I have come full circle. I gave up everything I had, I travel the country in a truck with Vinny my dog, and I’ve bought a sailboat! I started this blog to write about things I’m doing, things I’ve done and things I hope to achieve. I tell of the difficulties of caring for ageing loved ones and the trials of my past. Soon I will include my travels on my boat and my attempt to be as free from modern trappings as I can be. My future is a sailboat, the sea and my dog.
Please take a moment and view the Photography page. I’m still learning to use my camera properly, but I think I’ve had some good results so far, and I’m always open to any comments or suggestions for improvement. Thanks for stopping by!
