Summer Reading

Here's a jump to a review (in the SF Chron) of a new nautical potboiler by travel & sailing writer Ferenc Máté (The Hills of Tuscany, The World's Best Sailboats: A Survey). According to the review, "Ghost Sea," is a seafaring adventure tale set in the Pacific Northwest of the 1920s. Though the reviewer says that much of it is "overwritten" and some of the characters are "boilerplate," the plotline looks good...might be a strong addition to the easy summer reading list.

I'm heading to the Chesapeake today with Will, my four year old son. We should be getting out on the water Saturday, weather permitting. Have a great weekend all.
