However, for the author - Ron Palmer such an existence by nature was not to be. To misquote a saying- you can take a sailor away from the sea, but you cant take the sea from a sailor, and the pull to return to the water is forever strong. I want to go down to the sea again to the lonely sea and the sky, as John Masefield wrote in his poem Sea Fever. This book relates the further experiences of a nautical nature for the author after retiring as a captain of VLCCs (Very Large Crude Carriers.) Im loath to say that these adventures are to be the finality of the emotional pull to seafaring, but who knows, something might crop up to take me away again. After all if one doesnt have a dream then there isnt much left in life to live for, and I certainly dream the dream. A must read for those who lean towards a sedentary life style, the armchair adventurer and for those who have a dream. An urge to get up and go will take hold of the adventurous. A most enjoyable read for all ages.
