SHARE THE ADVENTURE!
“So saltygardener, I hear you were in a ‘sinking incident’ in Brazil? What on earth steered your life journey to be living on a boat?”
Hmmm.. its true, I have actually been in a boat that sunk. Friends tell me it is a great story (I might even relive the adventure and blog a recap of the email I sent all those years ago…) and it occurred at night in the seas off Isla Grande, Brazil. To shorten a long, wet, coldish, singing and laughter filled night on a remote cactus and urchin covered rock I can confirm it was an adventure I would not like to repeat. Within a week the cuts were healing, chocolate birthday cake had been eaten from a hammock (Kate I will love you forever) and I was back aboard a sailing day trip albeit on a much bigger, sturdier boat. Maybe that sums me up fairly well – a little bit scatty on good plans, up for the adventure and ready to report on the outcome?
Lets just say that this salty is not your ordinary garden variety ‘Arrrgh’ (spoken in pirate) sailor, all who know me would say I’m a land-lubber at heart. I love things that move and am deeply inspired to follow them and their amazing stories ESPECIALLY if they are edible. Plants and the seasons in particular, also nature, people, sea travellers, artists, musicans.. I could go on and on.
How did I end up living a sailing adventure life? That one’s easy, I simply followed my heart. This blog is for me to tell stories, to inspire others, to perhaps ignite the dare to dream. To show that day to day I live a fairly different life, but with a whole lot of normal thrown in. I even try desperately to grow stuff and be self-sufficient. If just one reader is encouraged to take the step sideways, dare to do what is not considered normal and follow their internal desires then I will be a very happy blogger in-deedy.
