Join Lin and Larry as they journey on Seraffyn’s Oriental Adventure. This tale of two young dreamers adventuring along the sea on board their self-built 24’4″ cutter. They cross the exotic sea that spawned Homer’s tales of Ulysses’ Odyssey, then sail through the strife torn Red Sea and across the typhoon tossed waters of the Bay of Bengal. In this book, fourth of the Seraffyn series, the Pardeys have reached a turning point in their lives-halfway around the world, eight years into a meandering voyage. Their routes had always been determined by the need to find the work to support their cruising life-style or the desire to see an island spoken of by some favorite writer. Now they have to decide whether to turn back westward or continue eastward and complete the circle with a return to the place they once called home.
The intimate details of life on a small boat, along with the interesting people the Pardeys meet in each exotic port, fill Seraffyn’s Oriental Adventure. But the underlying theme of this book is the demands of passage-making as they sail up through the China Seas and across the north Pacific.
Praise for Seraffyn’s Oriental Adventure
Seraffyn’s Oriental Adventure is the last (and possibly the best) in the series. Jam-packed with high adventure, this book is equally crammed with good information on seamanship, planning, companionship and sensitivities to people. ~ Robin Roberts, The Tiller
The best part of Seraffyn’s journey is the storytelling. Even when nothing exciting happens aboard Seraffyn, Lin Pardey makes you feel as though you missed something infinitely special and awe-inspiring. ~ Michael Conant, Seattle Washington Post-Intelligencer
