To put me in an ocean-going frame of mind, I’m reading Blue Latitudes: Boldly Going Where Captain Cook Has Gone Before by Tony Horwitz. We won't be following Captain Cook's route, but to quote a friend “There’s nothing like reading about the lure of the open sea before experiencing it first-hand.” Cook’s last port will be our first, Hawaii. We hope to find the locals more hospitable.
