My favorite sailor

Me and my favorite sailor

This is me and my favorite sailor (and granddaughter) this summer. We were on a sail on the Hawaiian Chieftain, doing research for the book I’m writing.  The Chieftain and the Lady Washington battled that day with guns blazing. Everything was real except for the cannonballs. I’ve got to  say we took the worst of it.  Had she more than paper wading, The Lady would clearly have shot our anchor away leaving us at her mercy. Fortunately we lived to play another day.

It was indeed a glorious day, for me especially, as you can tell from the photo above.

Here’s the dreaded enemy ship under full sail.  It’s the ship Johnny Depp was on in Pirates of the Caribbean.
