Big Grin just saying hello

You can tell I have just joined as I couldn't figure out how to say hello on the hello page... to be sure to be sure... Anyway I live and love in Hawaii, Kauai actually and it is spring/summer now and a more beautiful place to be I am not aware of...

I joined this forum to introduce my first published book on amazon's Kindle. It is about how, when I was a young lad of 20, I decided to fulfill a dream of building a sailboat (in South Africa where I was born) and sailing around the world. It was a tall order, and I did not realize just how tall!!! Smile but with the help from my lovely wife, we built 'Deja vu' and sailed around the world with lots of fabulous adventures, thrills and spills, terrifying storms and idyllic sailingHello days, complete with several color photos, You gotta read it! Smile the link is http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0070F2TL6 and it is called Days of Deja vu by Jonathan Reid
Thanks for reading,

Welcome sailorladd.
I went to Kauai in 2004 and stayed near Princeville. You are fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the world. Hope your book is successful, I'll take a look.
Regards
Martin

Hi there, Sailorladd,

Wow - sounds like you've had one hell of an adventure, and landed at a pretty good destination to sit back and reflect.

Congratulations on the book and best of luck with it Smile
