Publisher's Summary

Most people at some point long to escape - from the weather, the commute, the routine. Sailing off in a 40-foot boat called Voyager comes at a price, however. Indeed, for David and Sandra Clayton it meant selling their house and possessions with a lifetime's collection of memories and emotions attached to them. But the result proved life-enhancing.
With her eye for detail and vivid descriptions, Sandra carries the listener with her through some of the Mediterranean's loveliest islands. Charmed by tranquil anchorages, ancient harbours and the people they meet, they also develop a fascination with the sea and its wildlife. And, whilst questioning the things we value and the nature of happiness, this book reveals the growing and sometimes amusing inter-dependence of two people alone at sea.
This is the sequel to the popular Dolphins under my Bed, which charted Sandra and David's first long journey: a 2,000-mile voyage from England, down the Atlantic coast and into the warm waters of the Mediterranean.

Intelligently read, warm and humorous

A worthy successor to the first book, this one covers the fraught process of selling their UK home and their passage out of the Mediterranean. Although not intended as a cruising guide, one suspects the writer's observations on the character of people and places visited would prove accurate and helpful information for other travelers.
