SILVER MEDAL AWARD for Nonfiction, Independent Publishers Book Awards KIRKUS REVIEWS: "A tender portrait of a clan coming into its own on the ocean." "Tina inspires me! "...motivational–a must read!" "An absolutely amazing and incredible book!" There comes a time in your life when you say, "Let's disappear! Get wild! Sail away!" The trouble with jumping into the African bush and onto the high seas is that you could die out there. I did...nearly, a few times. There was that rogue wave which nearly took me with it, a collision with a diamond mining ship in fog off Namibia, a raging elephant, and a lion that ate somebody – sadly. By the time we'd bumped around the African coasts, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, and sailed to the Caribbean, I was an emotional wreck. Still, I wanted more–to go further, disappear, and gather more outlandish escapades with our family. "Bluewater Walkabout: Into Africa" is the hilarious and honest account of one woman's quest to better herself. Whether jumping overboard to retrieve a wayward hat, chasing down a missing son in the diamond fields of Namibia, or warding off great white sharks with a camera, Tina's misadventures are ridiculous and unbelievable. It is a good thing she has the images to back up her entertaining story. This is a travel comedy memoir, set in South Africa, Namibia, St. Helena, Brazil, and Grenada.
