People, Places and Things

Some stories ask for more than a paragraph or two in a Travelogue.

Some stories need to be told, in their own good time, and that's what these pages are about:

Sketches of some of the people we've come to know because "Every Life is a Story";

Tours of some of the places we've visited, whether on or off a map - watch out because "Here Be Dragons"; and

Descriptions of some of the stuff we've come across because I was curious: "What's This Thingy?".

Not all of the articles and interviews are necessarily boat-related, but they are all among the many stories waiting to be told.
