Today is not going quite the way I planned, so while I’m stuck home sick, I thought I’d share some of my favorite nautical books. I find that when my little boat comes out of the water and the lakes begin to freeze, the nautical books come out.

I’m currently reading “Sextant” by David Barrie. Its full of history and sailing adventure. I’m enjoying reading about Barrie’s own sailing across “the pond” and he interjects nautical history and the technological advances that developed through the ages.
For a quick interesting read, I suggest “Salty Dog Talk: The Nautical Expressions of Everyday Life”, by Bill Beavis. I was surprised how many sayings and items come from nautical terms. Did you know that “Blazer” is a nautical term? I did not!
