Seeker: A Sea Odyssey begins as a fairy tale dream of finding Shangri la, and transforms along the way because of unrealistic expectations and a disintegrating marriage. It's a story about venturing into an unknown and more exciting life, and the heartbreak and growth that comes with the risks. The adventure lasts six years, from the building of the Santa Rita to her sale to a drug dealer in Spain in the summer of 1986. Our live-aboard home takes us to Hong Kong, the Philippines, Borneo, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, Yemen, the Sudan, Egypt, Israel, Cyprus, Turkey, Rhodes, Greece, Italy, and Spain. And in relation to all that I had experienced, what I decide when offered by my ex-husband and best friend the possibility of sailing with him again thirty years later.
Hour after hour we tossed about in a savage ocean, the Santa Rita no more consequential than a speck of lint in a vast washing machine. There was no horizon. There was no sign of anything sentient. There was nothing out there but wave after wave of black, rolling water with its deafening roar, accompanied by loud cracks of thunder and sheet lightening coming from all directions.
