Whale of a tale

In the story for “Salvador,” the down on his luck Captain and his ship mate, Skip have a turn of fortune when they befriend a colossal baleen blue whale.  After being ridiculed by the local villagers, and unable to bring in a decent catch, the Captain and Skip are washed out to sea.  They realize the whale wants to help them.  They fashion an grand mast from nearby pine and stitch together what they can for sails in order to create an enormous saddle for the whale. The creaky, run down, tugboat instantly becomes the helm of the fastest, best fishing ship that ever sailed, err swam, the seas.

    • Hi Donna,
      Thanks so much for the interest! The upcoming whale tale is not complete yet bit I Will certainly be posting details. “The Island and the Plough” is completed and is in the printing process so that book will be available soon.

      Cheers
