The photo above is the work of Fred LeBlanc (http://fredleblancphotography.com/)who sails on The Heritage every year. This is the schooner we will be sailing on the week of June 6th. To learn more about your own sailing trip, contact The Heritage at: www.schoonerheritage.com or by phone at: (800) 648-4544
I plan to take photos and keep a journal, so I hope to come back with a “good report” of our trip to Maine.
While this is my Home Page for June, July and August, rather than make a list of all the things I want to post, as I usually do, I am leaving my plans open-ended, except to say I will be reviewing several books, one of which is an Italian cookbook by a local woman with a wonderful story about her creation with her son Frank. The name of the book is Italian Moms: Spreading Their Art to Every Table. I will feature a couple of her great recipes.
Since I will be away for one week in June and again the end of July, I may post some of my recipes from previous summer postings during those weeks. For example, asparagus is still readily available, so I may post my asparagus soup. (Photo below)
Finally, I chose Sail Away, Sail Away as my blog title for the summer, because I am very excited about going on this trip (taking along some natural anti-sea sick remedy) and want to share photos and my thoughts with you when I return. I also chose this title because of the metaphorical meaning, that is, even if you are not going on a cruise or a schooner this summer, you can “sail away” at home by letting go a little and relaxing more, taking time to smell the roses. In other words, take time to “sail away” from daily chores and find activities that re-charge your batteries. Read a book, go for a swim, visit friends while the weather is good. Take time for yourself because you are worth it!
More coming in the next few days before I literally sail away……
P.S. For those of you who are regular subscribers, I would like to know if you would be interested in a personal e-cookbook, that is, I would send you a booklet of 10-12 recipes in one attachment of recipes that I choose for you after you tell me your personal favorite foods. Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will work on this project during the summer. For those who want to subscribe, I offer the same “gift” when you sign up.
