In case you're curious, we never did any chartering!  The flyer at the top of this post was a part of the paperwork we received when we were looking into buying Tropic Moon.  She had been a charter boat for 17 years.

Tropic Moon - Part 3

One of the things I'm learning as I work with my 30-year-old slides, is that I should have taken better care of them....  I did what I could with the images in Photoshop, but ended up making some of them more like watercolor paintings because of the poor quality of the slides.  This is another reason I so totally love my digital camera!  (Please click on images to enlarge to read the text.)

In case you're wondering how long this will go on, this book has 64 pages, and you've seen 15 of them so far!

The Adventures of the Good Ship Tropic Moon (Part 1)


I have a new passion (obsession??), and that's making small books.  I have two done and am working on a few more.  The first one, The Adventures of the Good Ship Tropic Moon,  is a compilation of stories and poems I wrote, and images from my slides, done during the time we lived on Tropic Moon.  Five plushies "crewed" and traveled with us, and this book is written from their perspective.  I thought I'd post the pages on my blog (so you'd know I'm still alive and doing something!).  Above is the title page and below are the first four pages of the book.  The book is 8 1/2" x 5" and is spiral bound.  It may be necessary to click on the images to be able to read the text.  If anyone finds that this doesn't work, please let me know.
