A SUMMER TRIP by Linda Hall


Those of you who read my work, know that I love the ocean - and everything that has to do with boats. I've always been fascinated with boats. Right now my husband and I are on an extended sailing trip with our used but new-to-us sailboat that we have aptly named Mystery. (Hmm. I wonder who had something to do with that!) We bought her in Annapolis, Maryland and for the past two weeks have been sailing her home to Canada. As I write this we are swinging on a mooring in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. If you are interested in following our 'grand adventure' here is our 'boat blog.' My husband has been mostly doing the boat blog, as I try to scrape minutes every day to write!

The picture is us sailing beside the Statue of Liberty. There is just something so cool about sailing your own boat around New York City,

Sounds like you're having lots of fun. I've never been on a boat for more than a few hours. We have a canoe - we've used it once.

The trip sounds exciting. Hope you'll have it in the next book!

Happy sailing!

sounds like fun but I am so afraid of water, will get in a boad but have to be close to land and don't want another boat come flying by and leaving waves. I am just a big old baby, 66 years old and big. LOL
