Straightening Up...

It has been a long time since I've been here, and I can see it needs some dusting and sweeping up. Much like myself. But all looks delightfully familiar and I think we will be able to get back into the swing of things in no time. A lot has happened since we last talked, as I'm sure it has with all of you, so it might take us a few posts to catch up. Meanwhile, I'll just putter around putting things in order while we chat.

First of all, I should probably give an update on my Mystery Tour, which is still ongoing. Oh, yes, indeed. There have been many setbacks (which happens in all adventures) but we are still moving ahead into what just might be the greatest adventure of all. Nothing to compare to flying to the moon, or sailing around the world non-stop (Heavens, I like to stop everywhere), but one's own travels usually turn out to be everything they have--or haven't--been able to cope with. It's all in how you look at it. 

Things I've been looking at lately.

More on that, later.

At the moment, I'm making myself a little nest onshore in Thorne Bay, Alaska, while the Captain tackles the huge project of restoring the Glory B. That beautiful 32' ketch we sailed up here on. The one that sank at the docks while we were "down south" visiting all our homes for the holidays, last winter. Not being here to stop it was a terrible shock. So terrible, in fact, that I still have not been able to look down inside. 

The Captain on his way back from the Glory B.
One quick visit to see the broken and bruised outside, and then I had to leave. Better I busy myself with the sort of work I know best how to do. Which is writing stories. So, if any of you are interested in the details and technicalities of the restoration, you will have to get those from the Captain over at his blog. Because the only thing I can tell you is that--at this point--he is still coming home all covered over with oil.

Coming Soon.

Meanwhile, I will be putting the finishing touches on a book, or two, that have been gathering dust for want of an ending. Hopefully so I can make launch deadlines in time for some of the lazy days of summer we are all moving into. I'll tell you more about those next time.
