Boating adventure

DSC01075 DSC01072 DSC01154It has been a while since we’ve had a vacation, so when our friends Marina and Ralph invited us to visit them in Nova Scotia, Lorrie and I decided to take them on it. The plane flight took twenty-one hours- delays at the Halifax airport- but our hosts waited for us over six hours until we arrived.

Ralph owns a good sized boat and the next day took us on a lovely tour of the nearby islands, stopping at various towns along the way. We traveled for several days, during which I learned to drink beer without spilling a drop regardless on how rough the water was. The weather cooperated and we’re saw some beautiful scenery, met great people and drank too much beer.

My writing is going along fine. I finished an edit on Witches and Warriors, which will put me back in the good books at Melange Books, and started on a couple on new stories. It was difficult to write at times on the boat. The ladies in their bathing suits are a distraction, and the motion of the boat on rough waters makes typing an adventure. I’m not sure if the beer and rum help or hinder the creative process. The experiment of drinking and writing will continue.

I’ll have more to tell at a later blog. Apparently we’re going to a pub tonight that has an open jam session. Ralph is warning me sometimes it takes a few rounds of beer before they sound good. Pizza, beer, music and new friends to be introduced to. Sounds good to me.
