These are some excerpts from my sailing log books that were converted from hand written text to electronic format about a half a dozen years ago.
I had been an employee of Data General Corporation for almost seven years when I went through a divorce. I wanted to take a 90 day leave of absence to gather my thoughts. I stocked up my boat and ran off. 90 days turned into years.
I started a conversation with her. I learned that she and her boyfriend had a fight. I learned he was also the sort of fellow that would hit her on a regular basis.
I had Wendy move into my cabin and I moved into the forward cabin. I always loved the V berth as long as I am in port. The shots below are after the first update to the front stateroom which was in late 1980.
Today we took the bus to El Jorullo. We walked around the town and had a fun lunch that was pretty darn good at a cost of about $1.85 for the two of us. I bought her a silver bracelet that she saw in a shop that she fell in love with.
The photos taken below are just a few of thousands. They were taken with cameras that ranged from 110 format to 120/620 format and 35mm. Most of the grainy shots were from my 110 format waterproof/underwater Minolta camera that could fit in my pocket and was usually handy.
There is not any explanation on the shots in these slide shows. There is information and explanations on many of them on flickr or on facebook. On facebook there are many shots in the album called "Places I ended up thanks to Spirit of Nemo, Spitfire and Echo"
