True Spirit - Book Review

True Spirit
By Jessica Watson
Atria Books - 2010

This is the story of Jessica Watson, the young Australian sailor, who is (as of now) the youngest person to ever circumnavigate the planet as a solo sailor and she did it UNASSISTED and in just 7 months. She was just 16 years old.

This is my review of her memoirs entitled True Spirit. However since I have already written the entire review once already and under Squidoo rules, I cannot copy it elsewhere, I am just going to link to it from here so you can read it as well.

I have already mentioned Jessica previously in this blog. Today is the first anniversary of her return home to Sydney at the end of her voyage last year.

Happy Birthday to me....

My birthday today...

Just had a quiet day - nothing special happening.
Other than I am getting old. Today I turned 47.
In just 3 years I will be 50!!!!
Not looking forward to that at all.

By the end of this month, my spouse will also have had his 47th birthday and my son will have turned 9 years old.
