Synopsis: For most of us, caught up in the busy, constantly connected web of modern life, the navigable coastal and inland waterways are a close, but unknown world...windshield background, briefly glimpsed but unseen. Blue Walkabout, A Time on the Waters is an invitation to visit that world and to learn a little about its geography, history and culture. Take a break, slow down, let the voicemail answer the phone and experience the waterways. Join the author and his cruising companion Betty as they transition from sailboats and ocean sailing to power boats, renovate an aging Down East boat and then travel the coastal waters of the eastern seaboard from mid-coast Maine to the Florida Keys, wander through the canals and navigable rivers of New York, Ontario and Quebec and spend time on the clear, clean waters of The Bahamas.

About the Author: Bill's lifelong infatuation with the oceans, sea coasts, ships, boats and travel began in 1961 when, at seventeen, he went to sea on a square rigged Norwegian school ship. Later, following service in the U.S. Navy, he worked for many years as a professional cartographer. He met Betty, an aerospace engineer, mathematician, pilot and experienced sailor, in a sailing club in Annapolis in 1993. A year later they left the Chesapeake on what was supposed to be a one year round trip cruise, south to the Florida Keys, over to the Bahamas and back to the bay. They never returned to their former lives. They lived aboard and cruised full time, power and sail, for fourteen years, from Maine and the New York and Canadian canals, south to Florida, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean, west to Texas and through the canals of France. During that time they renovated, sailed and lived aboard boats ranging from an ocean going ketch through a trawler and several Down East boats to a large antique, iron hulled Dutch motor barge. They still spend half the year cruising the east and gulf coasts and the Bahamas aboard their retirement from cruising boat, a Nauset 28 down east hardtop power cruiser.
