Synopsis: Paul and Emily Keller met late in life on the ski slopes in the Pacific Northwest. Both in their senior years, they married, sharing a love for new challenges and reaching for the next horizon. Their story continues in their second book as they set sail on an adventure circumnavigating the Eastern United States.
Sailing the Inland Seas chronicles the further adventures of these two "sunset sailors" capturing the vivid tales of Paul and Emily. On their motor sailor, Elizabeth M, they sailed from Florida to the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays, to the Gulf of Mexico through the Erie Canal, Great Lakes, Chicago and many great river systems including the Tennessee and Tombigbee.
A launching from Cape Canaveral, a personal encounter with a gentle manatee, Hurricane Hugo, a 4th of July celebration with rocket scientists and colorful encounters with tugboat captains are all described in a lighthearted spirit in the pages of Sailing the Inland Seas.
As they sailed, Paul wrote and Emily sketched...and they both loved the stimulating challenges of living in small quarters, storms, equipment malfunctions, and the joys of people, breathtaking scenery and...the next horizon.
Travel with Paul and Emily...share their experiences...meet the people they encountered...and learned what they discovered for themselves.
You're never too old to take up new challenges!
"Come along with Oregon's Senior Citizen Cruisers, as they add a circumnavigation of the Eastern U.S. to their impressive log. It's fun and informative reading for all boaters and wanabees alike." -- Jim Canton, Editor, Freshwater News
"If armchair cruising is your cup of tea, here is a freshly brewed pot. You will enjoy Paul's description of these waters and the people who live along them. He sees it through different eyes and things we sometimes take for granted are often greeted with wide-eyed surprise. If you've ever thought about going on a really long cruise, then you really should read this vivid account. If you've thought about a cruise like this but are convinced you are too old (tired, inexperienced, out of shape..) then you must read this entertaining account.' -- David Blum, Publisher, Heartland Boating
"Paul and Emily Keller are as much at home writing about voyaging on a sailboat as they are while voyaging on shore after dropping anchor. They make the case that cruising may, indeed, be best enjoyed when it is done later in life." -- Anonymous Reviewer
"Those of us who sailed the good ship Easy Chair with Paul and Emily through their adventures in Sailing the Golden Sea will be eager to follow them on th their inland sea journey. This literary travelogue, sparked with Emily's delightful sketches, will surely inspire some of us to Cast off...to seek a newer world." -- Wanda Zubak, Editor, Waterway Times
Paul and Emily, you have done it again! This is a delightful book for vicarious travelers and a stimulating story for those who dream from 61 yrs on and would follow in your wake. Like us, they will want to read it twice, just for sheer enjoyment." -- Lt. Commander Donald Bosley, USN, Ret., Circumnavigator
