Having survived their adventure through France to Carcassonne, you might have expected septuagenarians Terry and Monica Darlington (not forgetting Jim the whippet) to retire to a corner in the nearest public house. But no, seized by the spirit of Columbus, they looked to the New World and the massive and little-explored Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway which stretches from Virginia to the Gulf of Mexico…
Noone had sailed a narrowboat in the US before, for reasons that became clear during the 1,150-mile voyage of the Phyllis May– including thirty-mile sea crossings, waves, storms, fog, tornadoes, hurricanes, savage fish, poison algae, killer spiders and starving alligators.
But the real danger came from the Good Ole Boys and Girls of the Deep South who were waiting along the shore. Captains and Colonels, bums and heroes, fishermen and plantation owners, weathergirls and gongoozlers and beautiful spies, dancing dicks and the walking dead – all wanting to meet the Brits on the painted boat and their narrow dog and take them home and party them to death.
The beautiful eastern coasts of the US – the Carolinas, Charleston, Savannah, the wilds of Georgia and Florida – are unknown to many, and few have experienced the countryside and the people as closely as the crew of the Phyllis May. This is America with a smile on its face and an arm around your shoulder…
Beautifully written, lovingly observed and very funny, Narrow Dog to Indian River takes you on a sometimes dangerous, always entertaining voyage through a wonderland but a few steps off the track.About the Author:
Terry Darlington was raised in Wales. He likes boating but doesn't know much about it. Monica Darlington has run thirty marathons and leaps tall buildings in a single bound. She likes boating. Brynula Great Expectations (Jim) is sprung from a long line of dogs with ridiculous names. Cowardly, thieving, and disrespectful, he hates boating.
