The adventure is getting closer.....

I am now 4 weeks away from sailing on my Grand Asia & Australia Voyage. It seems strange because that means summer is coming to a close. Kids are going back to school soon and the weather will start getting cooler. Yep, it's getting to be that time again when I head off for a new adventure and leave cold weather behind (hopefully). I had a great summer! I got to see lots of friends and got in a lot of quality beach time. I once again spent time in Ocean City, New Jersey with the Frank family....always a fun time. I also got to spend time in Delaware where most of my family lives and some of my closest friends. I was in heaven when I returned to Rehoboth Beach, a beach I have been going to since I was a kid. I went to Chincoteague Island, Virginia to see friends from the Asia Voyage last year which was great.... first visit. The Outer Banks of North Carolina was another beach destination.... I also got a lot of things accomplished at home.... a place where I really enjoyed spending time after being gone for 7 months. I was also able to get 3 books put together and published from my "megavoyage". It was a lot of work but worth the time. All in all it has been a fabulous summer. My sister Lisa asked me to add the following: “spending time with my sister, Lisa, who is the greatest sister anyone could ever have, was definitely the highlight of my summer”. It's not over yet.... I head north next week for some final visits with family and friends and.... beach time. After Labor Day I have to start getting serious about planning this upcoming voyage.

Stupid Question Jeff....
Not the first and probably won't be the last either.

3 Books Published?
Can you tell me more please.

I started publishing photo books after my Amazon Voyage in 2006. I have since done one on Bermuda, a two volume set for the 2007 World Voyage, one for the 2007 Asia, Australia & Polynesia Explorer Voyage and a 2 volume set for the 2008 World Voyage. These are not commercial publications. Just a handful of each has been published for myself and a few friends have them as well.

Whitey you mean you didn't get your copy either?

For $100+ a volume I can hook you up with as many copies as you'd like...... Actually, the people who have them were actually on the voyage so it has some meaning for them.

Dang - just trying to razz you a little......

I'm happy you share with us what you do.

I think when in my younger days could color inside the lines.....

Books? I am lucky if I can find the time to get the pictures off of the flash card and onto the MAC.

Hope all is well-
