These are some of my remembrances of things past as I recall them, for the amusement of my grandchildren Edward, Alice and Ben, and for my family and friends. I hope you enjoy them.
I started these pages sometime around 2012 after I became a happy landlubber. I am adding more recollections and more photos as I find them, so come back often to see what else is new. (Comments on the contact form always welcome!)
This is me up the Macareo River, Venezuela, cutting weed from around the anchor chain in October 1999.
