In just a few days, my husband Dan and I will embark on our 25th wedding anniversary voyage. This one will be a true adventure-taking us across the northern coast of Spain in a Windjammer!
The last time I set sail on a Windjammer was with my best friend Becky, decades ago. Then, it was along the coast of Maine. The captain allowed, in fact, encouraged us to be part of the crew-helping with sails, anchor and even navigating!
I'm not sure what we will experience this time, but I know it will be memorable. And the fact my Middle Grade Historical Novel-in-progress is set in La Coruña, one of our stops, is a plus. Even better, the bulk of my story takes place aboard a similar ship, which is icing on our proverbial anniversary cake. Here is a photo of the Sea Cloud II:
So, I will have my royal blue lined notebook ready as we set sail from Oporto, Portugal. Before then, I hope to share a few historical tidbits along the way. For that is my passion: to make History and Scripture come alive for my readers.
Stay tuned for your armchair voyage. No need for dramamine. No fighting crowds. Just a peaceful and inspirational trip back in time. . .
