My granddad died before I was born and by then they had retired from farming and lived in a small nearby township. In the early 60’s my grandmother then in her late 70’s booked a round the world trip cruise. This new website is in honour of their courage and name; Cascaden.
ABOUT THE Author
About the upcoming Trilogy
“Thoughts of a Wayward Sailor” is a selection of short stories that is the first of a trilogy. There will be several themes that run through the series. Some stories will even have the same title but will each have a different story. Other themes for continuity will be: book cover, cartoon, maps, boats (sail, commercial and war), cooking, D=ST, navigation, soup, anchoring, explorers before Columbus, mechanical advantages, pictures, eatables, versus (ie. paddling vs rowing), theories and a wayward sailor fund. Some stories are written like a poem and will have 3-5 line stanzas. While other stories the title and the last words in the story will be the same, thus tying the whole story together. The rest of the stories will also be of my own thoughts on things.
