Something Nautical

July 16, 2012

I grew up in Detroit.  And Detroit is on the river. There are a lot of boats and a lot of ships. We were Depression kids, but various people had uncles who had boats and they would take you sailing and stuff. I read every book about sailing there was. Sea Here, Mr. Boditch and All Sails Set and all that stuff. It seems if I was going to be doing something adventurous, it might as well be something with the sea.  I still love being by the water.
